why won't my AVG show on my lower right hand tool bar?

My AVG runs a scan every Friday at 5:30pm. It takes close to 2 hours.
I right click on the bottom on my screen and under taskbar > customize notifications >  for AVG scan and all AVG related entries I set it to "always show". But, it never does. It's never on my tool bar. Another choice in the settings is to "always hide" or "hide when inactive".
I've tried "always show" and "hide when inactive" hoping it would not hide when it became active. Neither seems to work.
I want AVG to show on this tool bar all the time or when it opens to do a scan each week.
What is the solution?
Thanks.

Well... is it hidden or is it simply not there at all?  If it's hidden, you'll see it when you click the arrow to reveal all the hidden icon.  In that case, you probably just need to specify 'always show' on a different icon.  Sometimes one icon can have a few different icons appearing in that list, so keep looking for another icon that looks like AVG.

If it is simply not there at all, then I'm not sure.  Try uninstalling.reinstalling AVG.
