I tried every suggestion for my case here TNA–except system restore (too far back).
I'm gonna check on Microsoft Fix it, maybe there's some solution there. Thanks, guys.

It couldn't be easier...

I found this:

When I eject media safe to remove hardware message does not appear

and simply changed the option to hide then back to show icons and notifications and... voilą! Everything back to normal!

But now I wonder what Windows thing might have done such a "corruption" of that feature...

Solved on my part. Thnx y'all!

Paul, just for clarification... did you have to install that utility "Ultimate Windows Tweaker" in order to enable balloon tips?

No. I just set to always hide then show icons and notifications. Feels like Windows kind of reset the thing.

Notification Area Icons - Hide or Show System Icons and Notifications

Raees, since it's about corrupt files, I suggest you try the System File Checker.
