I have been having this problem for as long as i have Win 7, i think, but never gave it much importance, but now i am looking to fix it.
I do not receive popup notifications from the taskbar icons. For example, let's say my download manager has completed a download, it should popup out a notification balloon saying it has finished the download, but it does not happen for me. Softwares like uTorrent and OpenVPN becomes in accessible to double-click and are only accessible with the right click.
My brother has Win 7 too and he does not have this problem. How can i fix this? Below are my specs:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 @3.2Ghz
Twinmos 3x1GB DDR2 800Mhz + 1GB OCZ 800 MHz
Creative Audigy2 ZS
Zalman 5.1 Headphones
250GB Seagate SATA-II 7200.10 8MB
Enermax 535W PSU
