 DTS Task icons missing from Task bar and menu

As of 2 days ago, when I go into DTS Designer there are no
task icons on the task bar and the Task menu only
shows 'Register Custom Task' and 'Unregister Custom
Task'.  So now I can create any new DTS packages!  Also if
I open an existing task, there aren't any tasks on the
task bar, but the task that were already in the package
are OK.  This only happens from my workstation.  If I go
to another workstation and access my server from EM, DTS
is fine.  

I'm running SQL Server 2K.  I've already tried:
( 1)  re-loading SP3  - no help,
( 2 ) unintalling and reloading SQL Server - no help,
( 3 ) uninstalling SQL Server, removing references to SQL
server in the registry, then re-loading - no help.

I'm at my wit's end.  I can't think of anything else to
try.  Does anybody know what is causing this problem?

Irene,

Its not clear whether you've done those steps on your
worksation or the server.  I will assume its your
workstation.

You should make sure you have the latest version of mmc
installed.  Check you arent different from the other
clients that work.

The other thing I remember is seeing a microsoft document
on recreating the icon cache (or something similar).  It
involved registry work that isnt SQL.  Have a search on
microsoft for the document.

If neither of those fix it, I'd say you would save time
just rebuilding your workstation.

Regards,
Bill

Hik IHill,
Make sure you have the same service pack and the same MDAC in both pc's.
