    When I first started using my laptop, the battery icon on the taskbar was there, but now it's disappeared for no reason. The FAQ said to right click the taskbar, go to properties, notification area and then check the boxes, but the boxes won't let me. The FAQ said that means I need permission from the administrator, but I am the administrator.

    Can anyone help please?

    are you able to access msconfig? Maybe your notebook is infected by virus. It happened to me once before but i can recall the virus name though.

    Or another thing is maybe u can have a look at the local security settings to see if anyone meddles the stuff there

    I can access msconfig. What did do you when you got there?

    I hope it's not a virus. I just go the computer, maybe less than two weeks ago.
