    Desktop Missing Power Icon

    I have a new desktop. A dell Precision T7610 with win 8.1 pro x64. I installed APC Powerchute personal edition last weekend. Went out of town and last night came home and noticed I had no power icon on the task bar. I am not sure if this started right away or not. I do like to change the power plan from balanced to high power depending on what I am doing. I can do through control panel, but I figure I should fix why I do not have the icon on the task bar now.

    I tired uninstalling powerchute and it failed. I then re-installed and installed. Now power icon.

    in the task bar, customize icons, and then turn systems icons on and off, the power icon is set to off but I cannot set it to on. under customize icons, if I try to set to show icons, it says it is not active.

    unfortunately I do not have a restore point before last night. Not sure if I never had any (new machine) or if some how they got deleted.

    Any ideas?

    Possible APC poweshute does not fully support Win 8.1, I would check with APC for an updated program?
