Since installing Norton Internet Security 2003, the icons within my system tray have disappeared; including network connections. I am running XP and understand there is a setting by which you can hide inactive icons, but this is disabled anyhow. Even if the icons are active they cannot be seen
Have you tried, right clicking on the Taskbar, Click Customize. This should show all the icons, then change their settings to 'always show' On the previous page ensure the 'hide inactive icons' is unchecked and click Apply (That's what I forgot).
