Battery icon on taskbar disappeared

I have a Compaq Presario M2000 laptop with XP Home SP 2. A couple of days ago my computer downloaded some updates and now the battery icon on the taskbar is gone. I went to Start, Control Panel, Power Options, Advanced, Always show icon on taskbar, it was checked, I unchecked, went back in and checked, it still is missing. I Googled the question and read somewhere to download Tune-up utilities 2006, do refresh icon cache and fix icon cache, but couldn't find where to do the refresh icon cache. I'm open to any suggestions-thanks
