Cannot creat shell notification icon

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.basics (More info?)

Some times when I boot up I get a message "Cannot creat shell notification
icon", this doesn't always happen. When I click on "ok" it dissapears and
the system seems to work as normal. Is this a problem to wory about.

    Start>Run and type in "msconfig" without the quotes. Go to "Startup" tab. Perhaps, some of the programs there (those charged at startup) is the culprit.

    Frank

    I have done that and will have to wait and see if it fixes the problem. The
    trouble is that it happens infrequently, sometimes weeks apart. I will let
    you know if it happens again or in a week if it doesn't.
