    Windows "recovers from an unexpected shutdown" with no Power, Network, & Volume Icons

    Hey,

    Lately I have been starting to get a notification - "Windows recovered from an unexpected shutdown" - after waking up my computer. It restarts fine, but my Volume, Network, and Power icons are gone in the taskbar when this happens. I can't see if there was any errors because my Computer is always in Sleep Mode when it happens.

    I run scans daily with Avast and MalwareBytes, and there's no viruses. I've also disabled some startup programs recently, so that might be affecting it. I know how to Re-Enable the icons, it's just a pain to do and I'd like to see if it's anything serious.

    Any ideas on what is causing this?

    Merry Christmas,
    Verticity

    Hello, you could start out with some software checks. System Files - SFC Command and this : Check Disk - chkdsk

    If good, go to a hardware check : www.carrona.org Got memory and hard drive checks there.

    Also. check for malware using your antivirus program and free of Malwarebytes. : Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer
