Strange Notificaion Area Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello to all.

    I have a strange problem with my notification area. (Windows 7 Ultimate x86)

    I can move the icons around and interact with them all fine, but i am not able to drag the icons 'up' to hide them.  The chevron to the left of the area has also disappeared.


    I've tried going to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify and removing the DWORDs IconStreams and PastIconsStream - with no effect.

    Any ideas what the issue could be?

    Everything else on the taskbar works fine.

  • Right-click the clock and choose Customize Notifications, and then ensure that the checkbox at the bottom of the screen that appears is not enabled.
