Sticky Notes not working, now disappeared.

My Sticky Notes program only functioned properly for the first day I had the computer.  The second day, the program was still there, but it wouldn't open.  Now, months have gone by and the program isn't even in the "Control Panel" programs list.  I have
followed the instructions given in other threads by turning off and on the tablet features in "Program and Features".  This has not made the program reappear.

Please help!

Solutions to the Problem Sticky Notes not working, now disappeared.


Hi MediaMack33,

a) Do you remember making any changes to your computer prior to the issue occurring?

b) Have you done an upgrade or clean installation of Windows 7?
Sticky Notes can be launched from the following location:
 
C:\Windows\System32\StikyNot.exe

I would suggest you to perform an SFC scan and then check if you are able to use the Sticky notes.
 Perform a SFC Scan

1.
Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow

2.
Type the following command, and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow A message will appear stating that 'The system scan will begin'.
Be patient because the scan may take some time

3.
If any files require a replace SFC will replace them.
You may be asked to insert your Win7 DVD for this process to continue

4.
If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"

5.
After the scan has completed, close the command prompt window, restart the computer and check.
