    My taskbar icons next to my clock will not show up anymore! I am on my notebook, and I want the sound and battery icons to show up there, but they won't anymore. I enable them, disable them, apply, restart, it doesn't matter, they won't come back. The only icons that show now are messenger, my touchpad icon, and daemon-tools. I noticed it happened after i went to task manager and closed all the processe opened by my user name in order to try to get a game to start (thats what the tech guy told me to do) Now, now mater what I do, I can't get my icons back. Thanks in advance

    Sounds like some info may be missing from your registry. If you have Windows XP do you have a restore point you can revert to from a time before the problem had occurred?
