Yesterday I updated Nero 6 and found that vrious system tray icons had disappeared when I rebooted. They were Zone Alarm, AVG, & MSTAG I checked in startup in msconfig and they had disappeared from there. They were still on the computer and I could start them manually. I used system restore to go back and tried again, the same thing happened, so I have abandoned the update and restored my computer. This is not a pressing problem for me as I don't use Nero very much but I would like th understand what has happened. Am using XP Pro SP2.

No solution, I have decided to leave Nero alone

This may work :-
Go to Start, Run and type in services.msc and OK. Scroll down your list of Services and find both SSDP Discovery Service and Universal Plug and Play Device Host. Double-click on each and under Startup Type, choose Disable and OK.

If it doesn't work simply reverse the settings.
