Sometomes, it will go back to normal. I don’t know how to correct this as the most important program missed is the “removal of the hard disk” icon is always missing. Please help to correct this problem. Thanks in advance!

      Missing or hidden?

      Are they actually missing or just hidden?

      Do you have a “<<" character as the first icon in the tray? If so, the tray icons are just hidden. Right-click on the tray, select properties, uncheck the "Hide Inactive Icons" checkbox, and click OK.
