Windows 7: Windows 7 64Bit, Notification_Area_Cleaner & Remove Shortcut Arrows.

Windows 7 64Bit, Notification_Area_Cleaner & Remove Shortcut Arrows.

Seems I have run into an unexpected conflict when using Notification_Area_Cleaner with the remove shortcut icon arrows registry entry applied.

Please view Untitled0 & Untitled1 at your leisure and post if you know how I might resolve this.

(cause remains unknown)

Here are links to the tutorials used:

Notification Area Icons - Reset

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Thanks "speedgamer01" I honestly overlooked that part of the tutorial, right then it appears that FxVisor & Notification_Area_Cleaner are compatible.

I would undo the changes if possible and then use Vista Shortcut Overlay Remover mentioned in the second tutorial. I haven't had a single problem with that.
