Notification Area System Icons Have Disappeared
When I go to the Notification Area properties, only the "Clock" option is
checked. The "Volume", "Network", and "Power" options are un-checked AND
grayed-out so I can't check them. How do I get these system icons back? (I'm
running Vista Home Premium-SP2, and the only recent changes have been
"Windows Updates" - critical updates only.)

Thanks.

Re: Notification Area System Icons Have Disappeared
Updates will do that sometimes. When it happens to me, I reboot a
second time and then check the boxes again. If that doesn't work, I go
to the Network Manager and disable (then re-enable) the network
connection. As for the volume and power they sometimes come back on
their own. I've had a ticket into MS for over a month and they have yet
to respond.

Re: Notification Area System Icons Have Disappeared

Hello Bob,

Sometimes just restarting the computer will have them return. If not,
then the downloads in METHOD THREE of the tutorial below may be able to
fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
