Lost IE Icon And Sound Controls Icon From Taskbar?

Nov 7, 2006

no IE icon on desktop or in programs. i have internet access through verizon. i recently got windows update to install IE7 in the hope that would restore the icon/program but the only way i can access the internet is via the verizon browser. i clearly installed IE7 because now the "sidebar" of my verizon browser says that "sidebar i currently not compatible with IE7...". so why can't i get the IE7 icon in my program list or desktop?

Sound Icon Won't Appear In Taskbar

Apr 28, 2005

I'm not sure if this should be in the Windows XP forum or the software forum, so please excuse me if I chose the wrong one.I've been having this problem for awhile now, and it isn't urgent but quite irritating.For some time now, my volume icon has refused to appear in my taskbar. Every time that I want to change the settings I have to use START -> RUN -> sndvol32.exe, I have tried going into Control Panel -> Sound and setting it so that the volume control will appear in the taskbar when windows starts, but for some reason this setting is wiped when I restart the computer. (I'm not sure if its actually control panel -> sound b/c I'm on a campus CPU right now so I can't check it, but I'm sure you know what I mean... if not I'll repost later when at home)

If anyone has any ideas, please don't hesitate to throw them up here. I am clueless and this is really pissing me off now

Ie Icon Not Diplay On Taskbar

Apr 4, 2008

I don't know why, but I've noticed that all the programs in the start menu with links to websites don't show the IE7 icon. Why is that. I've also noticed in the system32 folder that the shell32.dll shows up many times with numbers beside them. I have shel32(3).dll, 4,5,6 + the original shel32.dll. I don't think it's normal. How the hell did they duplicate like this? And how do I correct the situation with the icon association in the start menu?

Two custom PCs with XP Pro at same SP level. PC1 sees printer through switch. PC2 can not see printer. PC2 connects and sees printer when I cable the USB DIRECTLY to the printer instead of going thru a switch. Therefore, I know PC2 can print. Have tried 2 different switches. An A/B data switch and Belkin's 4x1 USB Peripheral Switch F1U401. PC1 works with both switches but PC2 does not.

Cannot Remove Taskbar (safely Remove Hardware) Icon Or Associated Hardware

Oct 18, 2008

on my computer I have had a "safely remove hardware" icon in the task tray that I cannot remove or get to operate successfully.

the problem is that whenever I've attempted to "stop" the hardware I always get a message saying, "The ****device cannot be stopped now. Try stopping the device again later. The device is described as "generic volume", with what appears to be some form of identification number.

please tell me whats this how I can remove it and the icon from the taskbar

P.S. - I've newly learned that this "device" with it's icon in the system tray is the hard drive (by comparing the associated ID # indicated in the "properties" window with the hard drive # in the device manager window). I certainly don't want to remove the hard drive, but does anyone know why an icon for this device would appear in the taskbar, or know how to remove the icon only?

Pro Taskbar With "Group Similar Taskbar Buttons?

Jul 24, 2005

With XP Pro SP2, I enable "Group similar taskbar buttons". I generally have my taskbar stretched 2 to 3 rows even so. Sometimes, when I have a lot of windows open, and the similar taskbar buttons group and stack themselves, so 1 button contains 2 or 3 open tasks, I can't get any action out of the buttons that represent multiple open tasks.

Any of the taskbar buttons that represent a single open task are fine. But any buttons that represent multiple open tasks don't respond. I have to do Alt -
Tab to bring a task to the front, if it's one of the tasks on a button that represents a group. Or I can go to Taskbar Properties, and deselect "Group similar taskbar buttons".

Truncated Window Designations In Taskbar - Taskbar Grouping On

Jan 21, 2008

I've just switched from 98 to XP. I find now that the window designations in the taskbar for my *browser windows only* are severely and unaccountably truncated. My browser is IE6. Even if there's only one window open, if it's a browser window, only one letter will display. Other windows will properly display the full name. I've turned taskbar grouping on and off with no change. I've also run the SFC utility, with no change. There is no such problem in my Win98 machine, and my security settings (and all other settings) are the same. I don't wish to upgrade to IE7.

Taskbar Fails At NOT Group Similar Taskbar Buttons

I want to see all task bar buttons and not have them grouped. XP Taskbar menu offers check "Group similar taskbar buttons." I leave this unchecked, then Apply, then OK. XP still groups the similar buttons (e.g., Word doc1, Word doc2, etc.) instead of having these ungrouped.

Cannot Change Printer TCP/IP Port Or Add New Printer

We've had to change our address space and therefore the printer address has changed. I've changed the address on all but one computer. On this particular computer when I try to edit the TCP/IP port I get the message:

"An error occurred during port configuration. Access is denied."

If I try to create a new port I can select that I want it to be a Standard TCP/IP Port and then it tells me:

"Specified port cannot be added. Access is denied."

Printer Problems With SP2 And Network Printer Unless Lo..

I have connected 3 new PC's on a P2P network, and connected a HP 4610 Color Laser Printer via a JetDirect 175 print server. On one PC, I can only print from the Administrator account. The other 2 computers work fine. On the one that is having issues, when printing a test page I receive a "Failed to Print" error mesage, and looking in the printer jobs menu, it shows that there was an error printing. The
Administrator account can print fine from this machine.

The user accounts are "restricted user" accounts on all 3 computers.

Control Taskbar Auto Hide / Launch Control Panel Taskbar

Sep 1, 2005

I want a single desktop click to enable/disable windows XP taskbar auto hide.I can do this if I write a script for the AutoHotkey macro tool to open the relevant dialog box and then check or uncheck the appropriate check box.I'd like to open the dialog box with a command line from AutoHotkey, or a similar operation. Right-clicking the taskbar even in the program is uncool.The catch is, I can execute any CP dialog EXCEPT this one as a command line, either passing a dialog parameter to Control.exe or else using a *.cpl file name with Control.exe or directly. But I can't find "Taskbar and Start Menu".

Printer Spooler Won't Stay On - Printer Spooler Service

Mar 10, 2008

I'm a tech at a college and am working on this computer that the printer spooler service won't stay started.You start up the machine and go to printers and faxes. There are none listed (of course cause the spooler isn't running) You click on add printer and it tells you that the service isn't running. So you go to run services.msc, printer spooler says it's stopped so you start it. It will then run until you try to print something or go to printers and faxes in the control panel. Basically as soon as you open the window the printer spooler service stops.Does anyone know a fix for this. Last time it happened one of my co-workers found a tool to fix it but we haven't been able to find it since and all the researching I have done leads me nowhere

After looking at the display settings and closing them, my icon disappeared. A file search on all *.cpl files show that the display.cpl file still exists
and I can create a shortcut to the desktop and run the program.But, I'd like my icon back.I believe the problem was created by having all my icons underlined so I only have to do a single Left click to bring up the program.

I have an OfficeJet 710, when I load something to scan, fax or copy the Document Manager box does not come up. I have tried to uninstall and reinstall the printer but that doesn't help. I think my problem may be that when my computer was upgraded to Windows XP, they didn't include my printer therefore, it isn't compatible with my system.I can still copy, fax and print, but, only from the printer itself. Not from the Document Manager.

One is a Brother HL-1440 laser printer, the other an HP officejet 6110 all-in-one. I reinstalled the drivers for both, even went online and downloaded the most recent version of the 1440 driver. No joy. Clearly, I've done something wrong, but what?

I did this, of course, but was met with a message that"NO HI-SPEED USB HOST CONTROLLERS ARE INSTALLED ON THIS COMPUTER".
