Tray icons missing from taskbar

Hello all,

Yesterday i've formated my PC and installed Windows 7 again. Everything is fine, however, some tray icons are missing, like Comodo Firewall and Realtek HD Audio tray icons. Could this be related to some Windows Updates or something?
I checked Task Manager and the program processes were running (Comodo/Realtek), just the tray icons were missing.

Thanks.

  1. Obvious question, but did you reinstall Comodo and you Realtek drivers after reinstalling Windows?

    If so, go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons and play around with your tray icon settings.

    Of course i have installed them after i reinstalled Windows :) I formatted the entire HDD (two partitions)
    Thanks for the input, will try it later cause right now i'm not at home.
  3. Hmm, it seems that since i've sweeped the registry with CCleaner, all of the tray icons are showing up now. Must have been something, but i don't know what it is...
    Anyway, thanks for your help Herr_Koos, if the problem reapeares i'll post again.
  4. Cool, happy to help.
