Re: Sticky notes on Windows 7 disappeared

It seems that the Windows 7 file system might got corrupted due to some installation file which is why you are getting the issue with the same. I will advise you to run then System File Checker which will detect the error on the system file and if possible then correct the same. To run the System File Checker you have to open the command prompt and then run the sfc/scannow command.

I will advise you to go through the clean boot of the system which will help you to run the system free with the error if any. If there is any software which might be causing the issue then this will resolve the issue related to the same that you are going through then clean boot will resolve the issue with the same. So try out.

I think i can help you with the problem that you are going through. Just go through the steps that will resolve the issue. Open the "C:\Windows\System32 folder in Explorer". Search for the "StickNot.exe" file and copy that file to the desktop of yours. So if you like then go through and see whether you are getting it work or not.

I think that there might be some of the problem with the registry entry of the Windows 7 which is related to the Sticky key. The registry entry can be get resolved with the cleaning of the registry for your system. I will advise you to through some registry cleaner utility and work with the issue. You can use the CCleaner for cleaning the registry.

After going through all the detail if you are still having the problem with the Sticky note in the Windows 7 then i will advise you to contact the Microsoft regarding the issue you are getting. As they are the developer of the OS and might be aware of the problem of Sticky notes. So contact them and find the solution.
