Problems with XP Notification Area

  TCawth 22:21 24 Mar 2004

Recently, when I right click on an icon in the Notification Area (System Tray) I have found that I can not get rid of any of the menus that appear in the usual way of clicking elsewhere on the desktop.
The menu and remains sticking out from behind the task bar, but in front of any application I open, until I log off.

Any ideas??

In cases like this I normally don't worry too much about the cause (more than likely my constant fiddling!!! lol) but simply use system restore to sort it.

May also be worth running a virus scan first just in case you've picked up something nasty!

I've done a virus check - no problem there.

If I do a System Restore but do not go back far enough can I just keep picking a new date until things are resolved?

Also if system restore doesn't do the trick you can undo them-----one reason why its always worth a try.

Thanks, I'll give it a go this weekend.
