    Magnifying glass icon

    Why does the magnifying glass icon keep disappearing from the task bar and how do I get it back (and keep it there)? The last time I searched for magnifier.exe as someone suggested, got it back, now it's gone again. Please, this is driving me crazy.

    Red magnifying glass search

    Hi. It is not application specific. It appears when highlighting text in Office applications, Web pages, Wordpress, Blogger and even if I highlight text in this query form. The text is highlighted and at the end of the highlight a small red box, with a
    magnifying glass appears. Clicking on the icon opens a floating "search results" window. Thanks
