Norton desktop icon vanishing

I've just had the new update to windows 10 (1511) and on after it installed the Norton desktop icon has vanished. The taskbar icon is there. After the installation completed, windows did not re-start Norton but after a re-boot it came up fine but still no desktop icon. I cant find where the icon is created - can you tell me how to get it back please?

thanks

Hi, Alan. I don't have W10, but in W7 you can right click the item in Computer/Local disk C/Program Files x86, and select Send to Desktop {Create Shortcut}.

Does that work for you ?

Thanks for the reply but that option doesn't exist in Win10, the start menu works differently.

Can you access the program files as mentioned ? I wasn't suggesting going via the Start Menu.
