    Clock disappears when Windows Media Player is opened


    Hi everyone,

    As the title says, when I open Windows Media Player to play a song, my clock disappears from the task bar! I have to open up system icons (which shows the clock as 'on'), switch the slider to 'off' then 'on' again to make the clock reappear.

    This doesn't happen if I use Groove to play a song.

    Any ideas what this is all about?

    Many thanks,



    :)
