    i tried a work around by right clicking and selecting properties on the taskbar, then customize under notification area. it would look like something was trying to open then stops. so i open task manager and do it again. i see a dllhost.exe (COM surrogate) pop up for a few seconds, then disappear.

    Hello


    Please download & run this forum's sys info tool.
    http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Valuable_links

    Please provide the brand, model & model # of your computer.

    When did the computer last work well? have you had any other recent problems?

    Sometimes the exact date is important.

    What changed; hardware or software install or removal; a W7 update [ check W's update history ]; an update to a program such as Adobe Reader or Java or example; an update to your anti malware [ virus , spyware, etc ] program?

    edit:
    Boot to Last Known Good Configuration & try.

    Boot to safe mode & try.

    end edit

    Thanks for providing the screen shot!
