- The Network icon
- The Volume icon
- The Power icon
If you gave your computer enough time to finish the startup service initializations before you restarted it, and one or more of the system icons still do not appear in the notification area after the restart, you can make them reappear by deleting two subkeys from the registry.
Note You can determine whether these service initializations are finished by observing the hard disk light activity (if your computer has this feature). If the hard disk drive light blinks intermittently instead of being solidly lit, these service initializations might be finished. You can also check CPU usage on the Performance tab in Windows Task Manager. If CPU usage is less than 15 percent, the service initializations are probably completed, and you can shut down or restart the computer. You can make the icons reappear by deleting two subkeys from the registry. To do this, follow these steps.
Note You may have to reapply this workaround after you restart the computer if the icons still do not appear in the notification area.
Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
