    The power/battery icon keeps disappearing. When I am running on the battery I cannot get the icon to show in the system tray. I tried going through the control panel to make it show and it doesn't. After I hook the power cord up, I can get the icon to show in the tray using the control panel.


    This just started to happen but I can't remember when. Any thoughts? Here is my Hijack log:

    Scottyo, Go to the link below and click on the "?" to the left of "Why don't my Notification Area icons show or why do they disappear?" to expand it and you'll find some possible solutions. The "Disable SSDP and uPNP Services (Line 156)" has worked for many.

    Thanks! I went into the registry and changed the following:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\upnphost]
    "Start"=dword:00000004 (original value was 3)

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SSDPSRV]
    "Start"=dword:00000004 (original value was 3)

    After that I rebooted with power and battery. I have my Icon now. Curious to know why it would have changed. Thoughts?

    Can be Due to a Virus or Due to Restrictive Policies ..

    Did full scans last night

    Trendmicro
    AVG
    Adware

    Nothing was found. If you mean restricted policies with respect to admin control, my account has full admin rights.

    Not With Admin Control .... Restrictive Policies -- can be due to viruses or Trojan or ...

    Anti viruses do Remove the Malware's etc .. but They don't Remove these Policies

    Like

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    Adding a Dword value Named 'NoClose' and Giving it a value of '1' Will Remove 'Turn Off Computer" From Start Menu
