I have just restored my computer to its original factory settings, and
installed service pack 2. Along with all my other software, drivers,
etc...

I have received this error in the past and was able to find the
solution, but after hours of searching I can no longer find the page
where this solution was listed.

The error is this:
"Internal Error Tray Icon Creation"

It happens when my computer is loading, specifically when the small
icons in the system tray next to the clock are being loaded. After I
get this error, Windows stops loading my tray icons and I can't see all
of them, like my yahoo messenger and others.

Yes, I have tried "Hiding"/"Unhiding" my tray icons to no avail. I have
also tried rebooting (on numerous occasions).

I know this solution to this is to delete all the saved icon settings
from the system registry, but trying to figure out which one that is
like trying to find a needle in a hay stack.

So does any one know the solution, or know where I should look online
for it?

Regards,
Your Friendly Weatherman

Thanks for your help Wesley. I believe that fixed the problem. I don't
know how you found that page, but it was the one I was looking for.
Kudos to you!
