Welcome to the forums gadfell2,

 Please try using avast's repair function via:

Windows Key+R > Type in: appwiz.cpl > Select avast! antivirus > Click Change/Remove > Scroll down to find the Repair function > Click Next > Complete all the prompts and proceed to reboot.


 If above does not work, please take time to answer these questions:

(1) What are you PC's specs?
(2) What is/are your current antivirus(es)?
(3) What is/are your previous antivirus(es)?

L`arc thanks for the reply,it did the trick.I shut down and restarted and the icons reappeared.I have
uninstalled a Norton product,not sure if that was the problem but my probs came when I installed it.
Maybe coincidence?Thanks again.

 Good to hear. From what you've mentioned, you just have a Norton product before. Some Norton products leave remnants, after being uninstalled, which could actually interfere with the next antivirus's performance. If possible, please use the respective Norton Removal Tool (http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039) to eliminate those remnants.

 NOTE: Some parts of avast may be eliminated too. It would be better to reinstall avast after doing this so.

 Some. I couldn't tell yet. I just experienced it the first time I posted a problem about my PC in this forums. My avast suffered RPC errors after using Norton Removal Tool. Maybe it was fixed now since its already a year since then. Well, in any case, I'll just edit my post. :D

 Memories, haha. I feel nostalgic now, thank you Tech.
