    I have recently installed the updates to Tiger, but only today noticed that all my menu bar icons have gone (including the clock and spotlight button) and I can't get them back. Also when I plug in my camera, iPhoto does not open, nor does it show up when I open it. Also DVD's no longer auto play, though they mount on the desktop.

    In system preferences I have tried turning off and on all these settings. I have done a Disk Permissions Repair. Nothing has helped.

    I have a backup to restore to but would rather fix the problem if possible.

    Any ideas? Anyone had the same experience?

    Do you have the front-row hack? I experienced this on my PB with front row, and updating to 10.4.5 caused this. Eventually, a simple reinstall of the front row hack fixed it (though for some reason that was definitely not the first thing I tried )

    Thanks! That fixed it! Weird thing now is that the menu icons dissapear temporarily everytime I press apple-esc now!? Doesnt bother me to much.

    Thanks so much

    No problem :)


    I haven't noticed that icon-disappearing thing, but I've also mapped my Front Row key to F10 (and consequently remapped Expose elsewhere, but that's another story). I doubt that changing it from apple-esc would do anything, but you certainly can try :)

    Is there any way to get rid of the "Front Row" shortcut options in System Preferences? I deleted frontrow.app and I deleted a plist file for front row as well. I just don't want it to show in System Preferences or in the Sound pane...any suggestions??
