Service Manager is missing

Hi guys,

I've been using Tomcat 5.5.17 for sometime now.

My service manager (icon in the system tray) doesnt seem to load anymore, so I can't start/stop the server instance.

I tried going through start>Apache>Monitor Tomcat and that doesnt seem to do anything either.

I can access my JSPs/ and the logs dont seem to show any errros (or atleast i think)

So my question is how do I get the system tray icon back??

I had a problem with spyware a few weeks ago, could that have something to do with this?

Thanks in advance for your input.
Regards
Zein

If it's running as a Windows service, you can always stop and start it from the services manager.

control panel -> administrative tools -> Services

Thanks Ben for your advice.

It works, a little tedious though, is there no way of getting the service manager icon back into the sytem tray??

Searched the Internet, was unable to find a quick solution so I re installed the services via the Tomcat.exe file, works fine now.
