Tray icon missing after 3.0 driver install?

After installing the latest boot camp drivers, my boot camp tray icon has gone missing. Anyone else see this phenomenon? Is there any other way to access the boot camp options in Windows?
Edit: reinstalled and the icon appears

This is a stupid windows problem and often occurs if you install Browser based VNC software or use the Bootcamp partition within Parallels or Fusion.
These applications(programs) create their own Special Profiles and at the same time modify the items visible in the Task Bar Tray.
One of the victims is always the Bootcamp switcher.
By the way whats worse is at the same time they can disable the media keys on Apples Wireless Keyboards.
When you switch to Windows it may well boot to the wrong profiles.
On occasion rebooting Windows may actually load the correct profile with the tray icon.(This is however random in my experience)
Worse still if you have to restart Windows in some circumstances it will generate a further set of Profiles.
As a starting point and not foolproof whilst in windows
Right Click My Computer/Computer
Click on the Advanced Tab in System Properties and the setting radio button on under user profiles and see how many profiles are set.
Now delete any multiple and unidentifiable profiles.
Now reboot your Mac within windows and it might just load the base Try items including the Bootcamp switcher.

    Use the trackpad to scroll, thats what it was designed for. The scroll bars automatically disappear when not being used and will appear if you scroll up or down using the trackpad.
    This is a user-to-user forum and most people will post on here if they have problems. You very rarely get people posting to say there update went smooth. The fact is the vast majority of Mountain Lion users will not be experiencing any major problems with the OS, or maybe with apps which are not compatible, but thats hardly Apple's fault if developers don't update their apps.

    YouTube icon missing after ios6 upgrade

    D-fest,
    I was upset about the YouTube app as well, and my initial impressions were that the Apple YouTube app was better, but after using it a bit I realized the Google YouTube app was actually better. Some of the features are initially not obvious (in this case it was a matter of what I was used to), but they are all there and more. It seems to generally work better too.
    I don't stream an awful lot, but I have not experienced any wifi drops while doing so yet.

  • Icon missing after installed Adobe

    Hello,
    Does anyone have the mac icons missing issue after installed adobe creative cloud installer?
    My macbook pro icons were missing (didn't show) right after I installed Adobe Creative Cloud Installer (download from Adobe website).
    At first, I thought the issue is my machine, so I went to apple store genius bar and left my mac for a week to let them find out the reason.
    Apple erased my system and reinstalled it, and machine passed all the diagnose test.
    Yesterday, I got my mac at apple retail store and everything was normal (no icon missing).
    Right after I installed Adobe Creative Cloud Installer, the icons were missing. Then, I uninstalled Adobe Creative Cloud Installer, everything was back to normal, including icons were back.
    I have no idea how this happen and why. But according to apple, they told me it should be the software issue and ask adobe for help. Adobe there is no phone call support form Adobe.
    Does anyone have the same issue like this, or does anyone know how to solve the issue?

    Hi Jeff,
    Thank you for your reply. Please see the screenshot.
    This is when I try to create a folder, it happens like this.
    The second one is after I close this folder and reopen it. Please the second image.
    The last image is very funny which I am not able to see anything form applications folder. But, actually, there are a lot of things. As you can see from Dock, there are many things like imessage, Photoshop, chrome etc. They just not shown!
    I can only uninstaller the Adobe Creative Cloud Installer to solve it.
    Do you have any idea how to solve it by any chance? Apple said it was caused by the software. They even replaced my logic board to solve it, but they still couldn't.

    Disclaimer: I work for the people that make MacDrive.
    MacDrive is designed to reactivate on the same computer provided there are not a significant number of hardware and OS changes. It's very comparable to Windows XP/Vista...if you're reinstalling the same OS on the same system, and you don't want to be bothered with uninstalling first, then the software will reactivate without any help from our support staff, or any preventative action on your end (e.g. uninstalling).
    In the event you are constantly changing operating systems (and/or hardware), and you don't want to be bothered by the self-help option of uninstalling before you wipe the computer, then you can always turn to our extremely effective and responsive support staff. We guarantee a same day response during the week (average response time is less than an hour). That level of response time ensures that even if you buy a brand new computer on the weekend...you can use the software in trial mode until we're able to assist you during the week.
    I genuinely appreciate the criticism...I just want to ensure that everyone reading this thread gets the facts.
    To the original poster, I'm very appreciative of you bringing this up. What version of the Boot Camp drivers do you have installed on your MacBook Pro? I've been trying to replicate what you're describing on my MacBook Pro (admittedly, an older model) without success thus far.

  • IMac taking long time to boot after new hard drive installed. Help?

    I recently had a new hard drive installed on my iMac (running Snow Leopard). After the intall all was well, but I couldn't get my screensaver to work. Erroneously thinking it was missing, I reinstalled it and ended up with two screen saver folders in the system files. Now when I turn on the Mac, I get a white screen for several seconds (close to a minute) before the system shows me the Apple logo and then boots. I'm concerned about this. Did my copying the screen saver cause the problem? Should I reinstall my system software?  I was planning to upgrade to Mountain Lion anyway. Will that fix the problem? Any suggestions appreciated.

    Restart in Safe Boot Mode (hold the left Shift key as soon as you restart your computer and hold it until the Apple logo appears). Once it gets to the desktop you can restart normally. Safe Mode  serves a number of purposes and one of them is to delete/trim temporary files that might be causing boot problems. There's no guarantee this will improve your startup time but it will do no harm and I have seen computers restart more quickly after a Safe Boot.

  • Icons missing after GTK upgrade

    An interesting little bug that I suppose I should mention: after upgrading my version of GTK today, I noticed that the "fullscreen" icon and the connection indicator icon are missing in Galeon. This is still the case after logging in again.
    Would this be solved if I upgraded to the newest Galeon version?
    (I was planning on doing that, actually, to compile against Firefox. I know that type-ahead find won't work yet, but I don't use it very often.)
    Edit: Wow, even more icons are missing. The notification tray icons, the buttons in Rhythmbox, and several other things have been replaced with "missing icon" symbols. Restarting the whole computer does not help. How do I fix this problem?

    Wierd ... I noticed I have 2.6.5-2 of gtk2 and noticed a few icons still missing. In gcalctool there is an icon with an x on the lower-right hand corner. VMware 5 has a bunch of those icons on the menu bar too.
    I noticed that they are fine on another arch box that I havent upgraded in a while.
    Maybe reopen the bug report or open another one.  :?

  • Restoring data after new hard drive installed

    I just got my MacBook Pro laptop back from Best Buy after having a new hard drive installed. I did not have them restore my files, as I have backed up files on my external hard drive- WD My Passport for Mac. I never originally did anything to the external drive in terms of setting it up, partitioning it, or anything. I just plugged it into my laptop and assumed it was doing the backing up. Also, now that I have my laptop back, I wanted to see if the external hard drive did what I hoped it was doing- backing up my files. I have have now plugged My Passport in hoping to restore my laptop and have discovered that I can't open some files from my iWorks files, as it appears that I may now have to reinstall that app. I guess I was assuming this app would have been saved to My Passport. In order to fully restore my files myself (trying to be more computer independent) what should I do? I have been reading some of the other questions people have asked that seem to be related to what I'm trying to do and read about partitioning My Passport. Should I go in now and make the one partition under the Volume Scheme on My Passport and then switch the name and the partition scheme from Apple Partition Map to GUID Partition Table? The message I'm getting is telling me that partitioning this disk in this way will delete all the data on this disk, so I cancelled and reset everything back the way it was, concerned I would lose all my data. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    You can download iWorks from the App Store.  Since you purchased it previously it should be a free download.
    Repartitioning or reformatting a disk will erase all the data on it.
    If you are already testing your iWork files it sounds like you have restored or can restore the files.  Other than iWorks, what did not get restored?

  • Re-installing Linksys Connect on laptop after new hard drive installed

    I have a E4200 router and had Connect loaded on my laptop. My hard drive crashed and needed replacement. I had no problem signing on to my WiFi once I got the new hard drive installed.
    With the new hard drive, I now do not have Linksys Connect installed on my laptop. My question is: Can I re-install Connect with the router running perfectly well or will re-installing Connect with the router already up and running cause me problems?

  • [Solved] Gnome 3 Shell - Icons Missing After Update

    After my last update session, some icons went missing in Gnome. Even more unsettling, only some are missing. From what I can tell, my application icons haven't gone anywhere, but things such as minimize, restore, close, etc. are 404. Here's a photo to explain: https://vps.nullh.net/uploads/gnome-icon-issue.png I also noticed nvidia is included in the last update. I searched the forums, but all of the other problems seemed to be different problems (e.g. application icons were all bunched up/missing, desktop icons "missing", etc.) I feel like I should probably have more icons in the folders, too, but I haven't looked in there before the problem to be sure. Also, Alt+F2 "r" doesn't make a difference, the shell reloads but the icons are still AWOL. If anyone has any ideas, I am all ears.

  • System Tray icon missing sometimes

    I have an HP printer 4100 series, Gateway computer, Vista.
    I've had two times when I booted up and the HP Printer system tray icon was not in the system tray.
    I will look at the Notification Area setup and one of the icons listed (under Past Items) is "Terminating Digital Imaging Monitor."
    However, I was still able to print normally.  If I reboot, the system tray icon will return.
    I've had the same printer/setup for over a year.  This never happened till today.  Normally the system tray icon will appear at startup.
    It may be one of Vista's quirks - I sometimes notice inconstent things about the system tray icons.
    Anyone know why this might happen?

    I am on the same os and having the same issue. I tried reloading java and found it did not help.
