Windows 7: Notification/Tray area activation

18 May 2010   #11


This should be a problem with the add-ons installed in your browser and applications that run your notification area.
In your browser, disable all third party addon and check the issue.
For your notification, you can clean boot your computer and check.
Clean boot - start - run - msconfig - startup - disable all - restart.

Windows 7 HP

Thanks, it looks like it's one of my apps, worked straight away - I then did what you said only excluding a few of my smaller apps and it was still fine, started them and it happened again so I've got it down to a few.

Thanks for that tip, very useful.
