I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Having a problem with System Icons not showing. Been really frustrating trying to resolve. I actually had this problem before and was able to get it working using the registry overrides on this site, but they dont work now for some reason. I have attached my screenshots. One shows the 'Always show Notification Icons...' greyed out and no icons listed on the Manage notification icons window (you will also notice no system icons are displayed). The other shows all system icons greyed out except for the Clock
Here are the steps I have done:
1) Enabled the 'hidden' Administrator account as seen here: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable
2) As this Administrator account, Run several Malware/Virus/Rootkit scans from numerous vendors, no issues found
3) Used the registry options to try to enable notification area settings

4) Used the registry options for each system icon to enable

After all the steps above, including the Malware/Virus scan - still greyed out options.
Does someone have some advice on anything else I can try?
