Windows 7: Notification area icons disappeared

Notification area icons disappeared

Hello! I don't know how or when but some of my notification area icons disappeared - wireless, volume, battery and I don't know how to fix them without reinstalling Windows. I had downloaded a theme for Windows from deviantart and it changed some dll files, maybe that's the reason? Anyways I don't know how to solve this problem since changing their behaviour seems impossible.

Hello Mariyana, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like they got disabled. You might see if using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to enable each grayed out one again may help.
System Icons - Enable or Disable
Afterwards, you might do a full scan of your system with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free to help make sure that your system is clean.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Do you have a system restore prior to installing the deviantart theme? If not or if that doesn't work, try the following fix;

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
