Notification Area Icons settings are not saved

Hey Guys!

Some one of you allready expierienced that settings he made for some System tray icons are not saved?

I have the problem that my program is shown there but i can't set it to "Show Icon and Notification". Every time i close the program and open it again, the settings are the default "Only show notifications".

Is there a work around to force this? And NO i don't want to check the options "Always show all Icons and notifications on the taskbar"

Need your help

few questions... are you admin? when did this problem start? did it ever work before? if so, what was done(installed or settings changed) after it worked, but before it didnt work? What other taskbar type settings are you using? autohide? Does this happen when Miranda is idle or connected or both? all this info would be better at the start of the thread/post btw

well after that is said/answered... things to do....

You can manually click the system icon notification arrow, then drag the icon down and place it where you want. ( You can also re-order those notification/systray icons in any order you like)
or
restore default icon behavior, then try setting up your notifications again
or
run sfc (manages to fix alot of problems that fix other problems)


Thats all i have for now

Have you tried uninstalling the program and reinstalling it with any antivirus program turned off?

Have you installed it in Vista Compatibility Mode?

Have you tried check marking Run as Administrator?

Have you right clicked on the setup before installing and gone to properties and see if it says Unblock and unblocked it?

did you try dragging that icon from hidden area TO the systray? Then try rebooting to see if it stays after a reboot. Is this a "startup" item? or do you start the IM yourself?

it is possible that they are not saved because of an unsaved profile upon closing your session. Just to be curious, check the application log in the windows logs of your event viewer to see if there is 1530 error about leaked registry keys...
