System tray Icons reset themselves "sometimes"
Hallo, I'm not sure if thats the right category for the system tray, but the search function couldn't help me.
So heres my Question:
About a year ago I installed Win 7 64bit after I used 32 bit for some time. But here on 64bit, since the start I have a problem with the system tray, and maybe with the registry too. "Sometimes" when I restart my pc, every icon in my system tray which I put to "show icon and notification" resets itself. So when I start up, the only things that are shown are the network settings and the volume settings. I need to activate every single programm again and put these settings in again. And I don't want "every" system tray icon to show, just the ones I switched to show. As written above, "sometimes" means there doesn't seem to be any reason to reset on a special day, not always, but mostly with about 1-2 weeks until they reset again.
When such a reset happens, the windows explorer also opens in a window, not maximized. If I start Mozilla Thunderbird and Firefox, they always tell me that they are not the standart programms anymore.
So something is resetting around in my registry I guess. But I can't figure out what and why.
There is an issue with the registry, for some registry paths, I seem to have no permission. So I tried some things:
- I tried resetting the registry permissions to default with SubInACL. With these keylines:
subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=administrators=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=system=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=system=f subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=system=f subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive% /grant=system=f
I even tried resetting the system permissions to default, but the resetting system tray, resetting default programs etc keep occuring.
I hope you can help me. Thanks in advance.
edit: When I open TeamSpeak 3 after such an complete reset, it tells me, it needs to create some registry keys. Everytime such an reset occurs. That means something, or some programm always kills / resets parts of my registry.
