Well it's not your reg fix. Restored via disk image to an earlier date & still have the same problem. Strange, covered all the obvious settings. If anything I have to manually start the required missing program. Totally random.

EDIT: Right I'm pretty sure it's when PC Tools ThreatFire is installed. Will post in their forum.

"One of the things that ThreatFire could possibly to do cause this is alter a load-timer. This would cause things to delay in their loading until ThreatFire finished initializing, and since it never finished because of some wonky issue, deleting and reinstalling TF using the removal tool may have displaced this and allowed everything to continue as expected."

When installing, ThreatFire's driver stack should get executed & require a reboot. this means the program is loaded properly. This did not happen first time round so used the removal tool & reinstalled. All icons load correctly first time every time now.

Hello Jonathan,

This is what is in the REG file download, but steps 6 to 10 must still be followed exactly for it to work.

Code:
 
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify]
"PastIconsStream"=-
"IconStreams"=-

Great Tutorial Brink. I don't understand why doesn't windows 7 automatically not display an icon from an uninstalled program in the customize window. I hope Microsoft release a patch for this in the next service pack.

Hello Simon,

It's mostly due to the program not properly uninstalling itself, but it would be nice to have Windows automatically verify or reset the icons on some sort of schedule though.
