View Full Version : icon disappeared



02-04-2002, 07:37 AM
Installed a programme and the icon appeared near the clock for opening when required.
However on starting up this morning found it was not there. Tried re-installing, to no avail, and there is no contact e-mail on the 'read me'. Any ideas? S. M.

Hi SM
I'm no 'gun', but assuming your new program appears on your startr/programmes list... select start/programmes/startup and if your program's icon isn't there (probably won't be if the program's not launching on startup), you'll have to find the .exe file that launches your new program and place it in the startup folder.
OR manually launch the new program and look for a configure/options tab in one of the drop down menus - you can usually (not always, though!) set a program to launch at startup from within the configure/options menu.
See how you get on - I'm happy to help further if you get stuck.
Cheers

See what I mean about being no 'gun'??!
Sorry about all the repeats - I was proof reading my reply to you as the page was loading and thought that by pressing the 'stop' button, my reply to you wasn't being sent,allowing me time for corrections - obviously not!

Thanks Lynne. But still no joy . Incidentally the programme is 'spychecker' and it is listed on the start/menu and clicking brings up , licence, read me and install.. That is as far as it gets .. Can not find an .exe file . Not to worry about the ' gun' part. I am on a big learning curve .. Cheers..S/M.
