Config window missing

Hey guys, about 90% of the time the shortcut in the notification bar is gone, leaving me no options to access anything. It is running in taskmanager but i have no way to change anything or mess with the fan settings. force closing it (when it will let me) and restarting it doesn't fix the issue. Neither does deleting the settings file and letting the app recreate it with stock options. Any ideas would be excellent

Thanks guys

also what is the best way to disable everything BUT the fan control portion of the program?
