Aloha,

I am not sure if a malaware caused this problem but I am having problems with the System Tray icons. I used to have a couple of icons in the system tray but some of them are not showing. Then other random ones are showing such as Quicktime and AOL Hi-Q. The ones that used to show but not showing now are: Yahoo Messenger, TiVo Server, and volume control. Then sometimes, Windows Explorer crashes and then those icons appear while the Quicktime and AOL Hi-Q icons disappear from the system tray. WHat is happening to my computer? I even went back and did the whole preferences thing with Yahoo to show the icon but that didn't work.

I have Windows XP.

Aloha Peterm,

Thank you! I did a virus scan and unchecked the UpN network options in control panel and everything returned to normal. Apparanetly, this problem had something to do with Explorer startup. It is pretty common with WIndows XP. Thanks!
