  • 1. Sometimes logging off and back on or restarting the computer clears the problem.

    2. If (1) doesn’t resolve the issue, deleting two registry keys may, but create a system restore point before deleting them just in case something goes wrong.

    Open a Run window (Windows Logo key+R), type regedit, press Enter and in the left pane navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify.

    In the right pane there are two entries: IconStreams and PastIconsStream, right-click and delete them, restart the computer and the keys will be recreated. You may have to (just once) right-click the Taskbar > Properties > Notification Area > Customize and put a tick in any that are missing.
