    I like this - thnx.

    One issue :

    I have all my icon behaviors set to 'Only Show Notifications'. When restart is complete the Network and Volume icons are displayed and I always have to go in and redo the settings. Anybody else have this issue? Can fix?

    -thx.

    Hello Marc,

    Do they hide later on there own, or only if you reset their settings?

    Hi Shawn -

    'On their own'? This is what should happen? I have always reset manually after the reboot. Are you suggesting I wait awhile? How long?

    Tried it with a 20 minute wait while I did other stuff, - still there.

    Yeah, you might give it the day to see if they may hide on their own.

    Usually at Windows start up, the initializing of the network and volume most likely triggers them to show. Pretty much the same behavior with AV notification icons as well.

    Do you have this issue when resuming from sleep or hibernation?

    no.


    I have this issue ONLY when I run this utility AND ...

    CCleaner also performs notification area reset/cleanup, if the box is checked (refer to earlier posts in this thread). However, in the case of CCleaner one need only to restart explorer for reset/cleanup to take effect, a machine restart is not required. However, even this process generates this same issue.

    I must admit that I'm not sure why they keep showing on you. They don't for me after a restart with the same setting.

    Do they do this with any other user account?

    Only one account (other than factory admin) on this machine.

    Having this issue reproduced via CCLeaner tells me it is not due to your utility. I can live with it. Thx for looking in Shawn.

    Hi Shawn -

    Can you easily modify or make a new utility that will take effect with a restart of explorer as opposed to a full machine re-boot?

    -thx

    Hey Marc,

    Not that I'm aware of.

    Odd - for the heck of it I thought I would re-download & run that 'reset notification area' bat file from your tutorial and rather than hit 'y' to restart I hit 'n' and would run an explorer restart instead. Behold : when I execute the bat a restart explorer dos command warning window pops up instructing to save all open programs and then hit any key. I hit any key and then the reset bat file runs with the dos window appearing as per the tutorial. I hit 'n' per the restart prompt. I go to view the Notification Area and it is clean!

    I never told anyone this but I really do believe in the saying "ghost in the machine".
