Yesterday, I was typing a Word Document and my MSE daily scan started.
It interferred with my typing, so, I opened the MSE to cancel the scan. Now, the icon for the scanner is not on my task bar > lower right hand corner of screen.
It's on my program list and I can start a scan from start > programs > MSE.

How do I get it back to the taks bar and showing?
I have Vista.
Thanks.

Open MSE up and go to Settings and see if Real Time protection is still turned on.

all boxes are checked under "real time protection"

I opened it and did a scan, and then "x" to close, when finished.
Normally that would put it back in the tool bar.

Something I did last night, removed it from the tool bar.

It might be a hidden icon in the icon Tray. Right the Task Bar and look at the Properties. Check if MSE application is selected as hidden. Change it to show icon.

To recover the MSE task bar icon your best bet is probably to remove and then reinstall MSE.
 
From this previous thread you'll see advice on how to do that:

If you are unable to complete the uninstall using that advice, and if you're familiar with ccleaner, you could try using the "Reqistry" function to uninstall MSE:

last night, the day "after" the icon was missing, I looked in properties and MSE was not listed at all.

Today it is there, and the icon is back lower right tool bar.

It re-appeared after the 2nd re-boot, or after the test scan I did last night by opening the program from my start > program menu.
