    OneDrive headaches--icon missing from taskbar and more

    hi. i have had this problem in the past and was advised by microsoft to 'reinstall my OS'--which is what they say any time they don't know offhand what to do. so--from time to time i'll check to make sure the icon is still in notification area. i have had no problems, so i haven't checked. well, yesterday, i wanted a photo out of my onedrive files, but when i went to file explorer, it wasn't there. odd. nor was the icon in NA. odd, because usually, when my icon is gone, the files are still there, just without the green checks. i have found the files, but i have to go into C:\users... to find it--not where they usually are. when i go to the onedrive site, i am told my files there cannot sync with my computer, either it's off or not connected to the internet--which it is--both.
    first time this happened, i DID reinstall OS (there were other problems) however, last time it happened, i can't recall how i fixed it. i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling onedrive. doesn't work. when i reinstall--from a download i keep, as there is no .exe in my appdata file for some reason--it goes through the 'preparing for first use', i hear the HD speed up a bit--and then nothing happens.
    well, now, all of a sudden, there IS an .exe in the appdata file, but when i click on it, NOTHING HAPPENS EITHER.
    i cannot figure what is going on or how to remedy it. any ideas, anyone?? note, last time i posted about this no one replied... if you have any questions, feel free to ask, as i might have forgotten something. thanks in advance!!

Missing volume icon from taskbar
It was there yesterday and now it is missing, along with the battery icon. When I go to the properties panel those options are grayed out. Did i accidentally change a setting or something? Never had these problems with win 7 pro. :(
