Double icons in system tray

Hello:

In Windows 7, I have two icons for "Speakers" (21 % in my case) and "Network Internet Access". How can I get rid of the doubles?

thanks,

Download and install CCleaner (free app).
Once installed, open Ccleaner and look at the left hand side, scroll to the botton and check 'Tray notification cache' and then click the big Run Cleaner button at the bottom right side.
Now, in task manager, end explorer.exe. Then, under task manager, click File and click New Task(Run). In the box, type explorer.exe and press Enter.

Thank you, guys, and sorry for the *very* late reply. I do not get replies from this (and a few other) forums, and I have no idea why. It seems that I have all in order (although now, I can't seem to find where my e-mail address is).

In any event, I will try the tutorial, and if that does not work, CCleaner.

Best regards,

Hans L
