Hello greenday, i have the same thing happen where only the system icons come back (i think this is normal)

All you have to do is either restart explorer.exe manually or easier still just restart your computer & your tray icons will re appear

EDIT: To restart explorer manually follow steps 6, 7, 8, & 9 in this tutorial;

Notification Area Icons - Reset

Hi Marjun, Welcome to SevenForums

Here is a wonderful tutorial by ZaLiTH for creating Start Orbs
How to Create Custom Start Orb Image

You can also use Blizzaro's StartOrbz or Kishan's Start Orb Creator to create the Start Orb.

Once the Start Orb is created, you can use Blizzaro's StartOrbz or Kishan's Start Orb Changer to change the Start Orb or you can do it manually [tutorial by Sergio Garcia].

EDIT: You beat me to it Darryl
