    My first suggestion would be to do a scan at Trend Micro . then check in start/run and msconfig to verify they have not been disabled.

    i am using trend virus scan 2002 and its fire wall, i will run a full v s after loggin off. i trust trend doesn't miss anything. the icons where their until 11pm ? what am i looking for in MSconfig.exe, i always get confused? this v s claims to do a complete scan in 8 min, seems hard to believe, i am used to 45 min with other v s. Also i just noticed that my printer icon is gone ! ?? thanks, and how do i ck start to ensure all icons are a go and on ? bye for now . . .

    If you control/alt/del you should be able to tell if those programs are infact running or not.
