    I'm confused....after a bout with virus in my machine, I no longer have systray.exe in my startup menu....I have read that it is necessary, and also that it is not....which is right??....if needed, how do I get it back onto the menu??Machine seems to be running normally, but would it be better with systray.exe loading in startup??

    Your machine will run fine without Systray.exe loading.
    It's only responsible for the Volume Control, PC Card Status, Battery Meter and one or two other things you may have in your System Tray.

    If you'd like to have it back, do this:

    Copy the bold to Notepad, save as Systray.reg, and doubleclick to merge into the Registry.

    Reboot afterwards.


    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "SystemTray"="SysTray.Exe"




    This will register Systray.exe to start up as Windows loads once more.

    Good luck,
