Lightroom 4.1 - disappearing program listing & icons

Since upgrading to Lightroom 4 & 4.1, I find that Lightroom disappears from the 'All Programs' list & the desktop & taskbar icons also disappear. I have to search in 'Program Files' to find the program in order to replace the listing & icons which then disappear again after a few days. Any ideas? Thanks, David.

If memory serves this is a Registry problem and there is an edit out there that fixes this. I will have to see if I can dig up the link.

All I can say, James, is keep trying! I too re-installed LR4 & then LR4.1 several times without success. But thankfully the last re-install seems to have overcome the problem (for no obvious reason) &, touch wood, remains stable with the icons & program list intact & working after several weeks of use! I wish you luck.
