Hi guys.....
Need some help.
I did remove a couple of icons from the tray....now the tray is missing some icons, and also is missing the round thingy that allows you to expand the tray.
How can I restore this????

what icons are missing? are they related to any programs that you removed?
usually the only time you have the little round thingy is when there are enough icons in the tray for it to be minimized.

usually icons are only added to the system tray by programs that run on startup, programs that are currently being used. and programs that can be minimized to the system tray.

Thanks for the fast reply dsenette.
I am missing for instance the Avast Resident icon, and the Ad-Watch icon.
The round thingy is completely gone.
I did call a friend of mine....and he helped me to delete some old icons....and that's how it all started.
These are the steps that I did:
start menu, run, regedit
hkey_current_user\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\traynotify
(I deleted the Iconstreams and Pasticonstreams binaries on the right hand side)
Then, I hit ctrl-alt-delete, went to process tab, and selected explorer.exe, then clicked end process, then chose new task and typed explorer.
Something did not go as I expected I guess.
