Hello John, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if restarting the computer may be able to clear this up. If not, then you might see if resetting the notification area icons may help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

We have recently come into the same problem on over 800 PC's, Rebooting Has not resolved this. By Looking at customise we can see that some of the icons include network connection and Microsoft TMG client. Any ideas why this may have suddenly started happening ?

Hello Jon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If it's the same issue, then it's usually caused when the cache for the notification area icons gets corrupted for whatever reason. There's to many things that could corrupt it to be specific though.

Did you already see if resetting the notification area icons may help?
