What other security programs are you using, did you run one prior to the restart?

Try, uninstall, reboot, install, reboot, that should get it back.

It was just a thought as previously SpySweeper (I think) had a false positive on ashDisp.exe and deleted the reference so no avast icon.

Glad the uninstall, boot, install resolved it, that usually works for a last resort option.
