SDR vanishes from screen and need to cancel with Task Manager to restart

I am using a Flex 6500 with SDR  The on-screen display suddenly vanishes - sometimes after minutes, sometimes after several hours.  However, Windows 10 Task Manager shows that the SDR process is still running.  To restart it, I have to first end the task (using Task Manager) and then click the SDR icon.  System is Win 10 on 4 processor 2.6 AMD CPU.  Any ideas to prevent this?  Thanks...

    Go to Windows 7? I say this with tongue in cheek, but the other day I got another up date from Windows 10 and lost all of my icons. I did a restore, and put in GWX to get rid of this plague of windows programmers mania of change for the sake of change. I think there should be a special place in **** for Windows programmers.

    Since every other app on the PC works as advertised, I assume there must be something inside of the SDR S/W that causes this.  Tech Support anyone?

    There is something in the PC causing this, Maybe a help desk ticket would be good?

    When this happens, is there a SSDR ICON in the tray that can be used to Maximize the app?

    There is an icon, but clicking it has no effect.
