I am really sick of my PC constantly changing whether icons in the notification area are shown or not. Doing this manually every time they change is a real pain (I have to reset my Mailwasher icon to 'Show Icon and Notifications' every two days or so, for instance). Why does Windows keep resetting my preferences?
I thought I may be able to make the task of resetting the icons to how I want them displayed, rather than how Windows decides they should be, a bit easier by backing up the relevant registry key when the icons are displayed as I want:
and just merging it when things change. But although that seems to restore the values to the registry key it doesn't actually make any changes to what is displayed in the notification area.
Anyone know of a 'one-click' solution to this annoyance? Googling hasn't lead me to a solution as yet.. the following post (first answer) even seems to suggest that it isn't possible: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...-437c3c6a38aa/
