Have issue with iReboot (Win10 prof 32):
Works finne with Win10, but It happens often that the iRboot icon doesn't react anymore (no selection menu shown).
Need to restart system to get iReboot work again...

Try reinstalling.

Have already tryed without success (version 2.0.1.42). Issue not reproducible, happens sporadically...
What could I do when it happens again?

Let's hope someone else spots this and offers advice.

I'll page someone.
Have you tried reinstalling it? I also assume that you have EasyBCD installed on one of your partitions?

Yes, I have EasyBCD installed on one partition, controling 9 other partitions...

Sorry, haven't used iReboot for years (because I never use(d) W10 or W8 except to apply monthly patches, there's no need for me to switch boots any more)

iReboot runs in one of two different modes, depending on whether UAC is enabled or not. If UAC is enabled, the iReboot background service must be running for the menu to show up. Can you check the status of the service?

I suppose this regards my post...
Yes, UAC is active and ireboot service is running (at the moment).

But thanks for the hint. As mentioned above
Issue not reproducible, happens sporadically...
Next time the issue occurs I will be testing if the service ist running. Maybe it's killed for some reason...
B.t.w., when it happens, the task tray icon doesn't react anymore (shows no menue at right click)
