I didn't think it would.

Try reinstalling the drivers for your adapter.

Have you tried clearing the notification tray cache?

There's an option in CCleaner that does that, it's lower in the options - I don't know the exact name.

The catch is that after you do that you have to kill explorer.exe and then start it again.

or see the tutorial below for how:

What account are you using on your computer? I have noticed on my laptop that the icon does not show in the guest account while it does show in the admin account.
