I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Icon In Tray Showing Internet Connectivity

Easy fixes .

To enable the Connect To listing: Right-click on Start, click on Properties. Click Customize button on Start Menu tab, then click Advanced tab. Scroll down to Network Connections, put mark in Display As Connect To Menu.

To enable the connection icon: Go to Connection, right-click, select Properties. General tab. Put check mark in Show Icon...., click OK.

Should take care of it (I hope).

I'm helping a friend with a Dell Computer running Windows XP home. For some reason it is not showing the two small monitor icons in the tray that show I am connected to the internet. I had this problem several years back but can't seem to remember how to fix it. I keep thinking that there is a box to check in control panel to show the network connection.

If somebody could help I sure would appreciate it. I've looked in Google but haven't found the anser.

Many Thanks for any and all assistance.

I received a message from a friend asking about the network connectivity icon which can appear in the system tray. It's the icon of the two computer screens. Anyway, they lost their Internet connection and told me that system tray icon had the number '9' in it. I have never seen this before. I've see a red 'X' and an exclamation mark, but not a number.

Where can I find out what that number means? I cursor web search didn't help much. He's running Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (64-bit).

I searched to see if anyone addresses this issue and didn't find a thread for my exact problem, pardon me if I missed it...

I used to have a bluetooth icon showing in my system tray/notification area, which was a nice convenience. It disappeared within the past week or so, I think with the last big update. I made a tile for it on my start menu, so this is not the end of the world, but it bugs me that if I go into bluetooth settings, I have it checked to show the icon in the notification area, but it doesn't show... Does anybody know why this is and whether I might be able to actually have it show? thanks!

I am running Windows 7 64bit on a Toshiba laptop.
As you see in the attached photo, the connections information icon shows "wireless connections are available" status even though I am connected! I am connected via hotspot (with a program called Connectify) to another laptop which has wired connection. I have no problems with the connection itself, but only with that status icon's wrong display.

This happend after I installed software for a bluetooth usb adapter. I have searched the web for the same problem and tried the suggested fixes: uninstalled the software, uninstalled the network adapters (wired and wireless), deleted iconchache.db file but none worked for me.
This problem is really driving me nuts so I would appreciate any suggestions on how to fix it!

The icon indicating connection to the WEB is no longer displayed in the system tray. How do I get it back? I am connected to the internet but with out that icon i do not know how to disconnect.

I have gone to Control Panal - Internet Connections but there are no connections listed (?) Could that be the problem - and if so what do I do?

A:Internet Icon not in tray

When you are dailing or connecting from the internet you will find properties button on the dial up window. click and somewhere you will file "Show notification Icon when connected" option click and check it on.

Otherwise go to control panel >> in the left panel click "Switch to classic" then you will find "Phone and Modem Option" where if you look somewhere you will find "Show notfication Icon when connected" then check it on.

I've been using a DSL connection for 2 years, happily. I use the XP standard distant connection (for broadband) to connect.

I realised a few days ago that the tray icon disappeared, but I am still connected. The "display icon" option in the connection parameters is on. I tried off / apply / on / apply but it didn't change.

I can see that I am connected if I open the distant connection window, and this is the only way where I can disconnect it, apart from closing the session or windows. I don't like to open the distant connection window for this.

I was used to my tray icon. I liked my tray icon. I want my tray icon back !!!

Please !

My computer loads fine, the internet connection is made and then a few minutes later, any of the icons/processes I wish to use will not come up. About 20 minutes later everything opens at once and everything works fine afterwards. I will post more information but any tips or information would be appreciated. I have run the following in the last few days: Hijack This, Adaware, Ewido, Search and Destroy to remove worms/bugs/cookies. However, I'm not sure why it freezes like it does a few minutes after starting up.

A:How to restore missing tray icon? Windows 7 Tray Icons Changer

Hello bageraz and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'd uninstall the Tray Icon Changer using the forced uninstall option from Revo Uninstaller (they have a 30 day free trial.) Hopefully this will also remove unwanted bits and pieces from the registry.

Revo Uninstaller Pro - Uninstall Software, Remove Programs easily, Forced Uninstall

Then I'd try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two) to see if any system files were damaged or corrupted by the TIC. If any problems are noted run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

A:Internet connectivity drops; No change in taskbar icon

It sounds like either TCP/IP network stack or winsock is messed up which is a fairly typical problem but virus problems can look like many things.

If it's a virus problem run more scans.

You should also run malwarebytes to check for more virus's .

Windows security essentials is also worth using.

If you did have a virus it may have messed up the network stack or winsock.

Winsock entries tells Windows 7 how to access your network services. Additionally, your TCP/IP protocol can be corrupted. The TCP/IP protocol is a stack of 4 layers that includes several transport layers, but when this stack is corrupt you will constantly have connectivity issues.

Type or copy each command one at a time into an elevated command prompt then hit "enter" after each one, then reboot your machine.

netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)

netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)

If it's something on the wireless side then you should install Xirrus wifi inspector. A screen shot of this will show me the wireless landscape in your area and adjustments can be made from there.

A:Loss internet connectivity after a few minutes though wireless icon says connected

Sounds like you did not set the wireless encryption key correctly. You get a physical connection with wireless but if the security keys don't match you don't get to go thru the router ie. no internet. Usually this shows up if you go to a cmd prompt and type ipconfig it either shows zeros for ip [autoassign not enabled] or you get a 169.254.x.x ip which isn't valid for your lan subnet.

Redo your wireless security key on the new laptop

Hello all.
First time here and probably not the last on account of Murphy's Law.
My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium Edition (x64).
I installed IE11 with no problems.
Once completed, I rebooted but could not locate the IE desktop icon.
Inspected the Internet Explorer folder. All files seem to be there including the .exe file. After clicking on this IE11 .exe file, nothing happened.
Checked the Control Panel to ensure IE11 was in fact installed and that it was "activated." All in order.
This is a mystery as I have used previous versions of IE without any problems.
Any attempts, to resolve this glitch, will be appreciated greatly. Cheers.

I do have the same problem, and a search in the MS site provides the info bound to the following link,;en-us;303597

which ain't much helpful. Anyway I am going to remove all the protocols installed, and run windows xp setup once again using the /unattend option so that I wont have to re-install all the software existing.

You can try the same too, incase if you are on Windows XP. Insert the WinXP CD, type the following into your Start->Run dialogue box D:\i386\winnt32.exe /unattend (Assuming your CD-ROM drive letter is D:\) all the best buddy, and incase if you come across any other work arounds, please post it in here.

As you can see, it's not very smooth. The white curved lines have bluish spots inside. When I first installed Windows 10 on a virtual hard disk (vhd), nvidia drivers for my gtx 760 installed automatically by Windows 10 and the icon was very smooth. Later, I had to do a fresh install of Windows 10 on a Samsung Evo SSD and this time, it didn't install my graphics card driver automatically, I had to download it from nvidia's website. Anyway, how can I improve the look of this icon and make it smooth?

I am havig some system tray icon problems after installing anti-virus and spyware software. Looking for a fix for the disappearing system tray icons at initial start-up. Quick fix--log off and on again--icons reappear where they should. I am told that this disappearing activity is due to a Windows XP "BUG". What a problem! Any ideas for a secure, lasting fix out there? After the spyware and antivirus software installation, the computer star-up time is now really SLOW too. The software launches seems to be in conflict with each other, or something. Have emachine--T3406, Windows XP Home 2002, Service Pack 2. 1.23 GB RAM.

Hello to whomever responds to this thread This is the first time I ve used one of these help forums and my knowledge of computer lingo is limited but I d be greatful if you could help me with this problem A little while ago I downloaded an application which turned out to be a trojan or so I believe Upon opening it I received an error report and my antivirus program Symantec informed me that several items with trojan in their name had been detected and deleted I was also advised Icon Internet Explorer Tray System Protect System Live And Error In Report to reboot my computer System Live Protect Icon In System Tray And Internet Explorer Error Report and after doing so I became aware of a little red shield icon in my system tray Clicking it brings up a question which reads quot Would you like to update your security software and download System Live Protect quot I have not clicked yes because I believe this may be a problem Furthermore whenever I open Internet Explorer there is an error report quot Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close quot I am unsure as to whether these two problems are related but that is my suspicion Is there anything that can be done Thanks for reading

see the attachment for the icon with the exclamation mark.

Even though I have connection to the Internet and my wireless Network is active, the exclamation mark and the accompanying message remain. This morning I have been on the computer for three hours, for example, and I just made the screen shot. This condition has existed on a Toshiba laptop since "day one,' a number of months now.

The icon is of no value, if it doesn't change to "connected" when appropriate.

What is wrong? Can I fix the problem?

Thanks, {redoak}

Oh, is this not a service any more then? When KB3035583 first came out it installed a service called GWX, has this GWX service disappeared today and been replaced by these scheduled tasks? Would other scheduled task managing programs let you disable this: for example windows' task scheduler or CCleaner(startups section, scheduled tasks tab, maybe tick "advanced")?

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:

It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

If I understand your question correctly, you are referring to the icons in the taskbar (adjacent to the clock). If this is correct, you should be able to right click an open space on the taskbar and uncheck lock taskbar. This will alow you to right click the offending icon and delete it. You can then go back and lock the taskbar again.

I asked this over at Wilders and I thought I'd ask here too. I looked around the Emsisoft forum and Internet for an answer to this. No big deal, I suppose, but I wondered if anyone knows if Emsisoft plans to spruce up the system tray icon. As I said, it's not a big deal, and this program is by far one of the lightest I've used, with great test results to boot, but I like a professional looking icon. Bitdefender, Avast, ESET, Commodo, and even AVG all have professional looking system tray icons. Just wondering. Thanks.

I am having a problem with Smart Defrag?

Well, everytime I start windows, it does not put the icon in the system tray, like it should?
But if I uncheck the box, then check the box again, restart windows it shows in the system tray?
I have uninstalled it, but still the problem exists?
I even made a short cut to the startup folder, but it still will not add the icon to the system tray?

Is there a registry hack, that I can do, to make it show in the tray?, all the time?
Hmmm... Because I am tired of unchecking/checking the load up box...

I run a program that allows me to minimize a window to the tray in XP.
After I minimize the window I can go into the taskbar propertys and select "custom" and pick the minimized icon and select "always hide"

So here is the problem:
Although this works for almost all programs there are a few that I have to select always hide each time I turn on the computer.
Some windows keep the setting and are alway's hidden but some have to be resetup each time.

Is there anyway to tweak the reg or something so that WinXP remembers the setup? Is there a way to clear out the list of programs that is stored in the always hide selection? There must be a way to control this option.

There is an icon that shows up at every start up.
It is a camera application for sure, but I couldn?t find what it is neither from task manager/startup nor from programfiles/x86?
It shows as disconnected, therefore I can?t start the application.
Open property page, special effect, snap shot, zoom, face tracking are all grayed out and the only option is exit.
I couldn?t even make the icon bigger.
Does this sound familiar?
It is a newly installed OS and probably hundred drivers and programs were installed in one day, so it is hard to figure out which one was that.

P.S.: Nothing related, but it is 6 am on a Sunday morning and (I am guessing) a lady, is cleaning the house with a loud cleaning machine.

But you can do that by going to Contro Panel, then Network COnnections, then right click on your Local Area Connection, and at the bottom of the general tab there is a tick box for "Show icon in notification area when connected" That will put it in your system tray.

Unless your computer is a laptop or a desktop with a compatible UPS backup battery, the Power icon will not be available. If you do have a laptop, then sometimes restarting the computer brings it back.

A workaround is to create a shortcut (right click) for Power Options in the Control Panel (All Items view) to make changing it easier.

Strange looking icon in sys tray when I start up Windows XP Home. The moment it is approached by curser, it disappears. If left to its' own devices, it will also vanish after a time. Resembles small green handbag/carrying case with another tee shaped device next to it which I can't identify.

A:Avg Tray Icon Missing

Yes that has happened to me as well when it does update but there at the bottom of the screen there is no icon. What i did was sent my hard drive to my local computer place and they said that it was caused from power cord failure and had nothing to do with viruses or malware.

Did you try to uninstall it then install it? Or maybe you could try to turn it off then back on...

A:System Tray Icon

I'm 90-100% sure you have a spyware infection AND the red circle with the "X" inside is probably the culprit or a contributor to the problem. You probably picked up a trojan, your browser was hijacked, or some other security flaw in your system was compromised and malware coding was injected.

Have you noticed that your computer is slowing down, or locks up on you?
Have you noticed that your web browser's home page has changed?
Have you noticed that any previously installed AV programs or software is no longer functioning?
Have you checked C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file to see if there are new entries in this file? (by default the file should only be 1-2 Kb)

There seems to be a trend which is still pervasive and people just aren't catching on to it. Not sure when exactly this type of $hitware coding started popping up on the net, but its out there and its quite pervasive. Fraudulent spyware injection software which is floating around the Web / Internet, which implants onto your system, it will change registry key information, disable services, enable unnecessary services, disable AV or security software, among other things - all of which will contribute to bogging down your machine.

I would advise that the next time you start up your machine, make note of the supposed spyware infection and simply google it; you'll probably be surprised to find out that this is simply a fraudulent fishing ploy to get you to purchase or download software which will only further compromise your system. Bottom line, DO NOT download or pay for the software that they are advertising or suggesting. In most cases they are just trying to get personal information, including credit card information from you - probably to rob you blind or commit other identity theft related crimes.

Check out what information google mentions on this supposed spyware issue - 9 times out of 10 its trojan and you probably will not be able to remove it as the creator has set it up so that your user account will not have permission to remove the injected code, registry entries, etc.

What you find on google will probably point you to some suggested solutions or guidelines you can follow yourself to clear off the $hitware code. However, there's no guarantee that it will remove every single registry entry, every single .dll, or every single bit of the trojan. What's more, if you have System Restore turned on to monitor your system registry and boot partition, this is most likely where the infection lies. Because this information is reloaded and rebuilt at every startup, even if you delete the files that are present, they will repropagate at startup since System Restore functionality will rebuild the registry and boot partition files based on the information saved in the restore settings which are probably also corrupt.

You can try your luck downloading and installing AVG antivirus and Spybot S&D to locate the threats - but again, there's no guarantee that this will remove the problem as well. Your best bet is to wipe your hard drive and reinstall your OS and application software to ensure that you have removed the threat completely. Then make a good backup or ghost image of your computer that you can store in "removable storage media" that is kept offline so it doesn't get corrupt or infected. You want to ensure that you download and install all available security updates and patches, if you use IE then upgrade to IE 7.0 with available patches. If you use FireFox, you better believe that there are security flaws there also, and you should follow suit on security patches. If you use a filesharing program, you might want to consider toning down your filesharing activity - a lot of $hitware gets passed around through those types of forums as well.

Seriously, i would advise a wipe and re-install just to be absolutely sure - you'll be happier with your syst... Read more

A:Avg Tray Icon Problem

and lastly sometimes my AVG icon on the system tray hides away does this mean it is still active or inactive?? or it is okay to be doing so, thanks.I replaced AVG Free by Avast! on my mom's computer because AVG seems would crash quite often, with no error message. It definitely wasn't under the ``show hidden icons'' button in the system tray. Sometimes it would disappear when the computer was running, and sometimes it would just not start at start-up. Sometimes daily scans were missed because of this problem, I think. Mom did learn to double-click the desktop icon to restart AVG, which seems then would be fully functional (one of the nice things about it, you didn't have to restart the computer). I am quite concerned that there might be malware causing this problem, although I can find no sign in Hijack This, and the need for a memory upgrade could partially explain the computer's slowness.The downside of Avast! free edition is that there seems to be no way to set it to do daily updates and full scans automatically (or is it doing updates but not scans--I forget at the moment). The on-access protection starts automatically, but the scans have only run when I went there. Fortunately it isn't finding anything, because when Avast! finds something it suspects is malware, it requires operator interaction to continue the scan, and the scan usually doesn't finish before I leave.exactly this is what i was trying to get at! when something is hidden in the system tray usually means that application is inactive and not working or so, i thought avg provided real-time protection?? im thinking of changing my whole security package i have installed as everything is useless can anybody help me in this cause i do not want to keep double clicking the avg icon to restart avg its just ridiculous it should be on continuously wihtout having the user to do anything.thank you

A:System Tray Icon

If you are sure they are running in the background, you can set the properties of the system tray to always display the icons.

right-click on the task bar and choose 'properties'. At the bottom of the dialog click on 'Customise'. Here you set McAfee and Antispyware to 'Always Show'.

Another problem could be that they are not running. You may need to open MCAfee and Antispyware and set them to run at startup.

We recently purchased our first laptop. Several days ago an icon appeared in the task tray for the first time. When the pointer is moved over it, it displays "Synaptic Pointing Device". I'm pretty sure that this has something to do with the touch pad.The icon is just a gray filled shape and neither right or left clicking on it has any effect on it. This isn't a major problem, just an irritation in that I don't know why it appeared or how to get rid of it. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.

It may be present whenever the program is running. In that case, getting rid of it will disable the pad. Just use the tray icon hide function to put it out of view.

I gather that the SP 3 is not that critical and since I cannot get it to download, rather than trying to get it, can i remove the Icon from the tray?
many thanks

A:getting rid of the update tray icon

I don't think you can remove it because I could not find out how.
If you got all other MS updates then you really don't need SP3.

I was reading this thread here.

Then I got the SPBlockerTools from that is posted in the thread.

I ran the SPBlockerTools and it took the icon away from the clock.
Plus when you go to MS Update and it scans for updates it will not show SP3.

Anyhow I had troubles with SP3 and it also slowed things down so I uninstalled it and the PC runs better.
Now I know I will not install it again from MS Update because it will not show up or will I see the icon by the clock about it.

A:Tray Icon not refreshing

There is a problem with the system tray, it does not automatically refresh properly, and it also does not automatically remove old icons.

The only way I have found to overcome this is to use a registry change:

Notification Area Icons - Reset

If you now right click in the system tray and choose "Customize notification icons" you will see that your icons are now up to date and should refresh properly until at some point you have to do it again.

I don't know of any other reliable way to do this. Take care when editing the registry, and always make a backup before you do so.

how do you delete icons off of the system tray at the bottom right corner. so it doesnt take that long to start up and load. thank you.

A:System Tray Icon

The problem is really the programs behind the icons, not the icons themselves. These programs are "startup programs" that automatically run when you start your machine.

There are a couple of utilities that you can use to control your startup programs. My favorite is PC Magazine's StartUp Cop (I don't have a URL for it at hand, but you can Google it); I've seen a recommendation for StartMan (in another forum), available at:

There's also a utility that comes with Windows which will do the same thing but I usually avoid it.

Now for the important part: do NOT turn off all startup programs. If you do, you may well disable something important, so important that you may not even be able to boot your machine. If you mess up, start your machine in safe mode and then use the utility to undo the damage.

Take a look at the startup programs and see if you can recognize them, either by their name, or by their directory. I would recommend turning them off one at a time, to make recovery easier.

Hope this helps...

Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

System not icons I should see icons for my security and other start up programs I have loaded but they don't show I have to reboot the system three or four times before the tray icons will show The system works fine otherwise The security programs run fine when they are loaded so they are not the problem System tray notification icons not showing.. I tried a Google search for this problem and came up with this possible solution System icons do not appear in the notification area in Windows Vista or in Windows until you restart the computer However this seems to only apply to the volume power network System tray notification icons not showing.. icons and not my program icons I also found this but it is for Win xp Systray icons missing Windows Problem Solver I don't really know if any of those quot fixes quot can apply to Win Like I said the problem of quot missing system tray icons quot only happens once a week or so YES I DO System tray notification icons not showing.. have notification set to ON That is the first place I looked So that is not the problem Has anyone else seen this happen in Win If it is a program fault by Microsoft is there a solution Thanks for your help Scott

Hi everyone. I have the latest version of Yahoo Messenger on my Windows XP Professional computer. Anyway, it is set to load at startup but many times it does not show up in the system tray. I notice that it is connected while I am on the Internet but the icon is not showing up in the System Tray. It doesn't even show up when I expand the System Tray to show the hidden icons. Why isn't Yahoo's icon showing up? Can anyone help me to make it reappear? I'd greatly appreciate any help you can provide.

The Network icon in the system tray has a red X on it suggesting the Network is not connected but it is connected Both my sons showing tray Network in system as connected not are connected to the internet just as I am on my PC and my BluRay player Usually and for the last years it has a little blue disc showing that both the Internet and the Network is connected I use it constantly to see if I can connect to the Internet Now it has a red X against it Network not showing as connected in system tray I have tried lots of things over the last hrs to try and fix it but nothing works and on occasion when in the Network and Sharing Centre the whole computer is frozen so that the only solution is to switch it off and on and start again In the Network and Sharing Centre it shows that the Network Discovery is Off but when I go to try and change it it will not allow any change Then it can freeze and nothing can be done at all I assume that Network Discovery should be On In another instance it was saying that another programme was stopping any changes being made Can anyone shine any light on this problem please

Hello Caleb, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check using the tutorial below to see if you have Network and any other system icon you want to show turned on.

System Icons - Turn On or Off

If they are grayed out, then see if the tutorial below may be able to help to enable them again.

System Icons - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps for now,
