for some strange reason all of my system tray icons do not show up..I do not have any of them hidden at all.

If i want my network connection icon to show up i have to go into sound and audio devices in the control panel and click show volume icon (which doesn't show up until that is clicked anyway) I have done mass searching on the internet for a solution to this problem but no luck....

what if you right click NETWORK NEIGHBORHOOD, then right click your LOCAL AREA CONNECTION icon, then choose SHOW ICON IN NOTIFICATION area....

when you right click the task bar and choose PROPERTIES > check HIDE INACTIVE, then click the CUSTOMIZE button....are these items set to ALWAYS HIDE, HIDE WIN INACTIVE, or ALWAYS SHOW?

as i stated in my first post, none are hidden. Even if it was hidden, that wouldnt explain why i have to make the volume icon show to see the other network connection icons.....

what you stated in your first post does not mean that none of them are hidden...it is vague.

If you have the overall setting to HIDE INACTIVE ICONS, that does not mean the individual icons cannot have icon specific settings.

why did explorer crash?

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>


Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.
