green arrobs in system tray

Hi guys,

I think this is a bug...

Can someone tell me what the ... this is?

The arrows dissapear when you hover over them. I looks like a process is continually being started and ended/crashed...

If a normall process terminates unexpectedly, it's systemtray icon usually sticks untill you hover it.

How do i fix it?

Have you gone into taskmanager to see what it is? Or do you recognize the arrows from a program icon?

Have you tried clicking the customize... "link" to see if it's listed in there?

Maybe try clearing the System Tray settings?

Copy and save this code as a .reg file.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify]
Open Task Manager (R-click taskbar for a Start option) to the processes tab in preparation.
Now merge the .reg file you created into your registry.
Back to the Task Manager. Under the processes tab highlight Explorer.exe and click on end process. Then on the Task Manager menu bar click File then New Task (Run...). Type Explorer.exe in the Open: window and press enter.

Be aware that this will restore default settings to all the notification area icons so your display preferences will need to be re-set.

EDIT Tooooo Slow!!
