i'll have items that pop up on the system tray after my PC reboots. I can
get rid of them by going to properties, custimize, then select 'always hide'
to get rid of them. But, it will reset itself or something because everytime
I reboot, the annoying little icon is back in the tray. Anyway to fix this?

More about : system tray

Jim

I think you are referring to the Notification Area.

What does the Icon represent? Have you tried right clicking on the icon?

Try resetting the settings for the Notification Area: "How to Clear
Past Items from the Notification Area"
(http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283084).
