Lexmark icon Missing in Notification Area


P

Paul Calcagno

I'm running Vista Home Premium SP2 with 2 GB of RAM, all WU's, Firefox,
MBAM, SuperAntiSpywareProfessional, CCleaner, Spybot, CA Security Suite, and
WLM. The machine's running just great but after the last restart (to
complete the uninstall of Ad-Aware) my little Lexmark All-In-One printer
icon is missing from the notification area. It's usually placed right next
to my network icon. I've tried restarting the service (an app called
`lxcz_device') using `services.msc' but to no avail. The printer works just
fine.
Can anyone advise how to get that icon back again without doing another
restart? I hope this is the correct Newsgroup to post this to. Thanks,
PaulC.

Try logging yourself off and logging back in. That usually clears up
any missing notification icons for me. Sometimes, on initial bootup, an
icon will go missing if the service starts late.

Some of the icons disappear if you haven't clicked on them for a while.
Check if there's a < icon in the group; if there is, click on it to make the
disappeared icons reappear long enough that you can click on one of them.
It shouldn't matter if clicking on it doesn't do anything more than making
it
reappear on the short list.

Questor, the logging off and on worked to get the lexmark icon back, but it
created another issue: When I got back on and tried to open up my WLM,
instead of logging into Windows live automatically and then displaying my
mail, WLive started asking me for my Live ID and my PW neither of which I
could remember, and all of which were in an e-mail inside my inaccessible
WLM. Real pain in the butt. I finally had to do a restore to get my WLM
configurations back.
Any idea why a logoff/logon would do that to WLM? Paul C.

Robert, thanks for you reply. As I've just noted to Questor, I got the icon
back with a logoff. I could not exactly get what you were suggesting but
thanks for trying. PaulC.

My WLM does that occasionally. Usually after some sort of WLM update.
Most of the time though it will retain username/password for use every
time I start it. I do NOT let it start with the computer when booting
though. I start it manually after the computer boots completely up.
That way, I'm not shown logging in before I want to be logged in.

Robert was telling you of the little "<" symbol that will appear if you
have the "Group similar taskbar icons" box checked in the Taskbar
Properties. If it unchecked, then you don't see the little caret.
