Don't know what it's called, but want to fix. Please Help

Recently I received a couple virus' from a download. I've taken care of that problem but since then it disabled my ability to open the task manager, which I also fixed, but one other thing it did which was strange is change the way my..uhh bottom right half of my superbar works. I've provided a screenshot so you can understand what I'm talking about. I would like them to be back to clicking the little up arrow and having them all grouped together. Thanks ^^

Hello Levelchaser,

You can uncheck the Always show all icons on the taskbar box in the Notification Area Icons window to have this back.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

EDIT:
LOL, Marvin beat me to it.

That does raise an interesting question: What is this notification area box behind the little up arrow actually called?

I don't know the proper name, but I've always called it the "Notification Area Expansion box".

Thanks Shawn. Kind of a long name. How about NAEB.
