Windows 7: The notifications aren't show in the notification area

The notifications aren't show in the notification area

A week ago all the notifications in the notification area stopped appear. There is no problem with icons - they all are there, but the notifications aren't display.

My taskbar is set to autohide. When there must be a notification - i.e. when I disconnect a flash drive - the task bar stays for a moment (like there is a notification) and then hides, but there is no notification shown at all. The situation is the same with all other notifications.

By default I work with the checked option "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar". I tried to uncheck this option and select "Show icon and notifications" for all icons, also tried to set "Only show notifications", with no success - the notifications aren't display under any circumstances.

I tried to Reset the notification area icons cache, but this also doesn't help. Tried to turn off Aero - no change. Tried to turn On/Off "Always show all taskbar icons and notifications" using reg files from here, in both cases there are still no notifications.

In fact not a single notification showed in any way for the last week.

Any ideas?

Hello Byd, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if using the tutorial below to enable balloon notifications may be able to help.

Hope this helps,

What did you do here ? It should be checked or unchecked.

Thank you for the advice, Brink. I tried it. "Turn off all balloon notifications" in Group Policy Editor was in "Not Configured" state. I changed it to "Disabled", just to be sure, but this doesn't help.

I still think that the notifications are there - the behavior of the task bar is like they are there. But something prevents them to display.

I wanted to say that on my computer this option is and has always been checked - to show all icons and notifications. After the occurrence of the problem, seeking the reason, I tried to turn off global option and try the settings for each icon. As I said - with no success.
