Icon has disappeared
« on: April 13, 2007, 08:14:25 PM »
The icon for avast in the lower right hand corner of my screen.  (the icons in the start menu)  has disappeared.  I have no idea how this has happened.  Is there a way to bring it back?

What is your OS ?

avast! icon missing - As a temporary measure until this is resolved you can create a desktop shortcut for this file C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashDisp.exe (the avast icon and interface to the providers).  Right click on the file and select Send To, Desktop (create shortcut). You will need to run this after each boot until the problem is resolved.
What other security based software do you have that might block new startup entries, e.g. Spybot S&D (TeaTimer), AdAware (AdWatch), SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor (StartUpGuard), PrevX, WinPatrol, ProcessGuard, etc. ?

What avast services are running in task manager, they begin with ash or asw ?
