Preferred Solution: Old system Tray Options still there

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I found this process in my system tray and I have no clue what it is. I didn't put it there, and I can't identify it in Task Manager's process list. It showed up as far as I know yesterday. I was told by my friend who is a computer person (works at a place) to run combofix, as well as MBAM, and I did. I thought it was gone, but it showed back up a few minutes ago. Please help me either a) determine what it is, if its good or bad, and what caused it and what I need to do to get it off it is bad, because obviously combofix and MBAM didn't get it.EDIT: Now there is two of them, and I don't know what they are!

I am havig some system tray icon problems after installing anti-virus and spyware software. Looking for a fix for the disappearing system tray icons at initial start-up. Quick fix--log off and on again--icons reappear where they should. I am told that this disappearing activity is due to a Windows XP "BUG". What a problem! Any ideas for a secure, lasting fix out there? After the spyware and antivirus software installation, the computer star-up time is now really SLOW too. The software launches seems to be in conflict with each other, or something. Have emachine--T3406, Windows XP Home 2002, Service Pack 2. 1.23 GB RAM.

Thanks, ComputerMaven

satellite 1900-803 OS-XP-Home(SP2) has developed a fault at startup, it boots up but only has dull screen (equivalent of lowest screen brightness setting) and some icons missing from the system tray in the taskbar, (ie. safe hardware removal icon, mousepad icon & hide unused icon button), only fix i have found is to do a system restore, this returns everything to normal, screen icons etc, once restored no more problems occur even after hibernation, (restore point must be an automatic system generated point not manualy created)

Have checked display drivers, bios updates, system settings in display utilities etc, all appear correct and up to date, can anyone help, i've checked forums but not found anything similar, i've checked, reset connections of screen FL invertor, but no change, fault occurs whether on AC or batt.
suspect software issue? bios issue?
machine is 4 years old, and no real probs till now, did a full system reinstall about 1 year ago, (to iradicate virus i couldn't get rid of all ok after that, fairly compatent at machine disassembly and basic repairs but depths of software are getting to my limets of knowhow:D
any help would be greatfully received

Answer:Satellite1900 dull display at system boot + missing functions in system tray

Hi

I have read some topics about missing icons in the system tray. It seems it?s is a windows bug.
Please check these forum postings:
http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=14392
http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=15065

Maybe it helps.

I can?t say too much about the dull display. Of course if the Fl inverter is dead the display appears dull but you issue sound a little bit different. The problem doesn?t persist whole time. Therefore I think it?s not an inverter. Usually the Toshiba power saver is responsible for the display brightness. You should check the settings of the single power modes. Maybe you have switched between different power modes and the screen brightness was also changed.

Hello to whomever responds to this thread. This is the first time I've used one of these help forums and my knowledge of computer lingo is limited, but I'd be greatful if you could help me with this problem.

A little while ago I downloaded an application which turned out to be a 'trojan', or so I believe. Upon opening it I received an error report, and my antivirus program (Symantec) informed me that several items with .trojan in their name had been detected and deleted. I was also advised to reboot my computer, and after doing so I became aware of a little red shield icon in my system tray. Clicking it brings up a question which reads:

"Would you like to update your security software and download System Live Protect?"

I have not clicked yes because I believe this may be a problem. Furthermore, whenever I open Internet Explorer, there is an error report: "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close."

I am unsure as to whether these two problems are related, but that is my suspicion. Is there anything that can be done?

Thanks for reading

Hello,
I somehow got a Spydawn system alert popup virus after downloading codecs from the 'net thinking it was safe, i was wrong. I knew i shouldn't have trusted the download but did it anyways.
I managed to get rid of some items that were sent to my desktop plus the system alert that was in my control panel-add/remove programs. I ran ewido, adware,spybot and smitfraud, it doesn't say smitfraud fix..? I even did all of this in safe mode too, but the system alert popup is still flashing in the bottom right corner but now i can not access internet explorer...can't make a connection to the internet.

I don't see anything referring to spydawn in the log.


My Hijackthis log displayed these files that appear to be part of my problem.
I have no internet connection so i can't show you the complete log unless i copy all of it word for word...which i did for just these particular ones that seem suspicious.

I would appreciate some help please, with cleaning a desktop computer of a "ContraVirus' program installation. This is for a Windows 98se desktop computer - not currently connected to the internet (but this can be arranged later, if necessary. I am currently using a separate computer for Internet access and research - WinXp notebook computer).
The affected system (Win98se) appears to have installed "ContraVirus 2.0" program, 12 months ago and due to a recent change of owner and internet connection on dial-up is now becoming unuseable. Some symptoms are: Unable to enter Safe Mode, have an icon in system tray showing 'Virus Alert' with white cross in red circle. Left or right mouse clicks on the cross gets no response. Dial up connection periodically tries to connect (This maybe AVG antivirus, though). Recent add/remove program uninstalls have been done for 'ContraVirus 2.0' and 'Sierra - planner.exe'. AVG 6.0 Anti-Virus will not download updates, reporting that a file is missing?. AVG scan shows clean, but registry still has ContraVirus entries.

Hi,

I've been having some very slow system issues today and have checked that system resources seem to be at normal levels - CPU usage at around 20% and Memory usage at around 50% during normal operating.

However I have noticed a new icon in my system tray which I can't identify, can't click on, and has no text when I hover over it. Can anyone recognise it? It looks like a grey/silver square or box with something green on it - no idea what it's trying to represent

Does anyone know what it represents?

Answer:Critical System Errors Icon in System Tray

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

Ok, Thank you guys in advanced before I start.
 
So for some odd reason today on one of my laptops my wifi seems to not be working. Usually I like to go and look at my wifi signal to see what Im connected to as soon as I boot m computer. Well this time I started it up and the wifi system icon will not show up. Of course I go to customize to see if its disabled and if I can enable it. Well the option doesn't even show up. I restarted the computer and even used system restore nothing seems to work. I ran a wireless network troubleshoot and it says the problem cant be resolved. Im on one of my other laptops because I cant access the internet on the laptop.
 
So can anyone help me at all? Im new to this forum I think but I do have FRST so if anybody has an idea please let me know. I will provide all the information I can if you tell me what i need to get.

Answer:Wifi system icon not showing up in system tray.

Have you checked Device Manager?  Are there any problems noted with the wifi connection there?
Have you tried:
- downloading a fresh copy of the wifi driver from the manufacturer's website
- uninstalling the current wifi software/drivers
- installing the freshly downloaded drivers?
 
Have you tried to reset tcp, ip, and winsock?
From an elevated Command Prompt run (and press Enter after each command.  Reboot when done):
netsh int tcp reset
netsh int ip reset
netsh winsock reset

Answer:critical system error popups from system tray

You do have Smitfraud so we need to do the following:

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted: "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.

A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report ... Read more

Answer:windiwsfsearch, "System Alert!" in system tray

Hey there. Since I haven't received a reply in over five days, I thought I'd take the opportunity to add a couple of pieces of information to the puzzle. I guess I should have mentioned that I am using XP SP3 and IE 7.I don't have that weird "system alert" symbol in the system tray anymore. I just ignored it and it went away. Wish that worked for cancer. It was probably more of a symptom than a cause.I tried to roll back using system restore with no luck, it wouldn't allow me to restore to an earlier restore point. System restore is currently off. I turned on tea timer and it blocked some registry changes.I'm having a lot of trouble with Hijack This. When it runs it slows way down while scaning 015 Trusted Zone Enumeration. I will try to unistall and re-install it.Now my HJT log looks different than it originally did.Here's my topic with the old log.Here's a current log:Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 7:13:40 AM, on 10/18/2008Platform: Windows XP SP3 (WinNT 5.01.2600)MSIE: Internet Explorer v7.00 (7.00.6000.16735)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\WINDOWS\System32\smss.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MsMpEng.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:\Program Files\Lavasoft\Ad-Aware\aawservice.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\PROGRA~1\AVG\AVG8\avgwdsvc.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\CTsvcCDA.EXEC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exeC:...

Hey guys,

I understand that its normal for firewalls to detect and report blocked intrusions, but today after ZoneAlarm Pro started reporting these blocked intrusions (jumped from 2 to 28 in less than two minutes), a yellow triangular (yield) icon with an exclamation point started appearing in the system tray. Every time I clicked on it (right or left, no difference) the icon dissapeared... only to reappear a few minutes later. There was no information / balloon that accompanied this icon, so I really cant tell you more about it.

Right now the icon dissapeared and its not showing up anymore, so I was wondering: how can I obtain more information on it; or how could I know If Ive been hacked...?

I've been battling this for a while now. I have run SuperAntiSpyWare, Spybot - Search and Destroy, AdAware, Microsoft Defender, and SmitFraudFix. Things have gotten better, but I still have a couple of problems that I suspect is related to some form of malware/trojan/virus.

1. When I start up IE, I occasionally get a message in my system tray that says "System Message - Click here for details", and then an Explorer window opens and I get a Windows Popup that says "PCPrivacyCleaner may find dangerous traces that need to be cleaned. Don't let your privacy and reputation to be ruined by them. Making your private information public can cause problems with your boss, family, or friends.

Answer:"System is infected" pop-ups from system tray

Hello kj123 Welcome to the BC HijackThis Log and Analysis forum. I ask that you refrain from running tools other than those we suggest to you while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. By doing this and then choosing Immediate E-Mail notification and then clicking on Proceed you will be advised when we respond the your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed. I will need for you to reply to this post to confirm you still are seeking help.I also need to know if you have either a flash drive or CD that we can transfer programs with?Thanks,thewall

Hi all, turned on computer this morning and system tray at bottom of screen is double height. Tried with mouse to reduce it but will not. Will increase but not decrease. Any ideas?

Answer:system tray xp

It could be one of the toolbars that has become stretched and is taking up two lines. Try right-clicking the Taskbar, move the mouse up to Toolbars and turn them all off. Now try reducing the taskbar to normal height. If this works you should then be able to turn the toolbars back on.

Bun, it all depends on what you want to delete. If it's the sound symbol, then it's in the sounds property window. If it's something that you have add, then you will need to open that software, and have a look around in the settings somewhere, you will need to untick/tick something.

Question: system tray

When I boot up my system some icons do not appear in the system tray although the program is running e.g. spysweeper and the Yahoo widgets engine. If I need to access these programs this is normally done by right clicking the icon in the system tray. When this started happening I assumed these programs werent running and tried to start them from their shortcuts. I then received an error message to say that the program was already running. To get an icon in the system tray I had to stop the programs process in Tray Manager and then restart it from its shortcut. This doesnt work for one of the icons that doesnt appear, the Safely Remove Hardware icon, because I dont know what process to stop for it.Recently, quite by accidennt, I discovered that if I log out of Windows and then log back in, all my icons appear in the tray. I am the only user set up on the system. So when I boot up only about half of my icons appear in the system tray. When I log out of and back into Windows they all appear.

Answer:System Tray

Hey,

Here's a link on how to do it. If you do this, I believe it'll do it for ALL users, not just one. So make sure that this is what you want to do. Back up your registry before editing.

Brandon

I'm running Windows XP and the Firefox browser. My question is (this may sound dumb)but how do you remove programs from the system tray? I have a dell notebook and I want to free up some system resources. please help!

Answer:System tray

   Uninstall them.  Go to Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs, and uninstall them.  Now, I hope you're not going to uninstall important programs such as firewall and anti-virus.  I also suggest you use Task Manager to see how many processes you have running at various times and whether any of them are obviously hogging CPU resources.  Have you experienced some degradation in performance?  Are you currently using some spyware removal tools to keep your system clean?  Ever used CCleaner?  Do you ever defragment your hard drive?

Question: System Tray

Hi,

I just bought a Maxtor external hard drive and I hooked it up to my computer. I noticed and icon in my system tray once I turned the hard drive on.

This is a picture of the icon in the system tray, and the window that it opens up when I click it:



I never had problems removing unwanted icons from the system tray, but this icon I can not figure out how to remove. I was wondering if anyone knew how to get rid of this icon (not just hide it). If I don't need this program or whatever it is, please tell me how to get rid of it. I believe it may be a type of service, so is there a way to disable the service in the administrative tools? Is there a way to remove it through the registry? Anyway you can think of please tell me.

Thanks,
Ted

Answer:System Tray

right-click the notification area, and selecting Properties. Under the Notification area heading, click Customize. Find the Safely Remove Hardware icon and select Always hide in the Behavior column next to it (press OK and Apply to back out).

Question: System Tray

Hi,

I am very finicky about having as minimal amount of things on my desktop as possible, and with all of my system tray icons I have set them to 'always hide', only leaving my internet connection there.

When I restart my pc, some of the ones I have set to hide come back, with the option being 'hide when inactive'. How can I get it so that the ones I want to hide are always hidden??

I know it doesn't sound like much but it is really annoying. Also when I switch my PC on, the language bar always appears. This is something I have never used, but everytime without fail it appears. How can I get rid of this so it does not come up??

Thanks

I can't help with the tray icons but the language bar...

Right-click the language bar.

Near the bottom of the settings window click the Language Bar... button
In the new window un-tick the Show language bar on the desktop

EDIT: I also noticed that each time I removed this file (vxh8jkdq2.exe), it recreated itself by adding a different number to the file. Like morphing itself into something else. I am viewing my processes through a third party program.

How do I find the source of programs (icons) that get automatically loaded into my System Tray at the bottom right of the screen? There is nothing in any of the profiles under Startup so they must be triggered somewhere else. Thanks for the help.
 

Answer:XP Pro System Tray-How's it get there?

There are lost of ways things get loaded into the system tray.

For starter, programs make entries in the Windows registry that makes them start when you boot the system. However, I strongly discourage you from rummaging around in the Windows registry. It is a veritable labrynth of information, and scary as it is, if you delete the wrong thing you are screwed.

Another things that programs do to get loaded upon start up are make entries in the windows system files. Goto START>RUN>SYSEDIT and look through the system files for anything that references the programs in question. Pleace REM statement in front of that line to diable it, and restart.

Programs can also make entries in your start menu that get run on startup. Right click on the start button and goto explore. If there are any icons that pertain to the program in question, delete them.

You may also want to consider right clicking on the program icon itself and looking through the properties for a toggle box which will disable the "Run this program at startup" command.

Here is a few of the most common ways programs annoy you through your system tray.

Happy Hunting!!

Question: System Tray

hi I'm having a problem with the icons in my system tray. sometimes they are there and sometimes not. i try to keep these icons to a minimum but i think the security ones should be there. i also try to keep start up items to a minimum. i have a P4 2.4 mgz, 1 gig ram, running Windows XP SP2, AVG 7.0, spybot [incl. tea timer], AnalogX Port Blocker, spyware blaster and Peer Guardian 2. The ones that consistently don't show are AVG and Spybot's Tea Timer. I can always Cntrl Alt/Delete to check if these processes are running [they always are] but would rather correct the problem if I can . I am not really sure how the system tray works, perhaps i can reinstall a dll or something Any suggestions? Thank You

Answer:System Tray

I am in search of a solution for your problem, however, i see that you have software that performs the same function..... Take my advice, just install one particular software for a purpose....say if your anti virus is cater for virus scan and spyware removal, you do not need any more spyware removal. In my line of job, i have user who do not know anything, just install multiple software that performs same fucntion...e.g adaware, spybot, spydoctor...etc ..... It caused their system to lag and some even had their quick launch disappear till i had to maually install the script for them.....so do take note....even for firewalls too...... check that your system had a particular software that performs one particular function..

Answer:system tray help

Most of them are probably there from programs running when you start you computer. If they aren't programs you necessarily need running (Firewall, anti-virus), then you can try remove them this way. Go to Start > Run > then type "msconfig" and hit enter. Click the startup tab, and remove some stuff from there that you don't need and is showing up in your tray. If you aren't sure about what some things do, just post them here.

Answer:System Tray

Welcome--

Right click the task bar, left click properties, untick 'lock the taskbar',and tick the box that says 'hide inactive icons'. That should shrink the space and bring your arrow back. Repeat to relock the taskbar.

Do you mean the task bar at the bottom of the screen?One way is to boot into safe mode (press F8 as the PC starts and choose safe-mode from the menu) and then shutdown / restart as normal.Or alternatively, move the mouse pointer to the bottom of the screen and you may see it change to a two-ended arrow; if it does, hold down the left button and drag upwards - it should pull it up.

Answer:Win ME System Tray S L O O O O O O W

How old is this system? Who installed the components and how long has it been slow like this?
You are using WindowsME (eew, you'd be better off with 98se and if your hardware support XP) anyhow ME installed properly would run fine even with system restore enabled (System Restore in Windows ME is BAD, XP version is much more advanced and useful).
If everything seems to be loading fine until you get to the desktop but then system is slow and even stops responding when you start to use it then either the Operating System is troubled somehow (virus, corrupted registry keys or system files)
Device Drives that starts with Windows or the startup applications causing the problem (I have SpywareBlaster installed and it is not even any startup locations on my system nor does it have to run in the backgroud to do its job).
You have hardware problem...bad RAM or bad sectors (HardDrive).
Again without knowing how long you had this system and how long you have this problem, these are only speculations...
How much RAM do you have? HAve you done any upgrades or software installation prior to the problem? 99% of the time the last action you have taken (or event that took place without even your knowledge) is the cause of PC problems. When you boot in the 'Safe Mode' how does everything look? Is it still slow or stops responding? Is so then a re-install might be due or more so you have HW problems, can't be specific because you need to provide more info...

The other OS used to have MSCONFIG, so that you could remove the programs at startup. win2000 dosen't have it. However, installing this does:

Just install it, then go to Run and type MSCONFIG. Go to Startup tab, and uncheck those you don't want. If you're unsure, post the list and we'll go through it.

I just bought a Dell Dimension 5150, installed my programs and configured the desktop to the way I wanted. All was good. In the System Tray I had running, Norton Ghost, ZoneAlarm Pro, McAfee, MusicMatch, Dell Support and a few others.

Yesterday I booted up and some of these icons were GONE.

I tried tweeking with the properties page, start menu bar, and taskbars but nothing else worked. I even looked at each program that SHOULD be running in the System tray, all options to show in tray were checked but they still did not appear.

I did a System Restore to before I had the problem and it STILL didn't resolve it.
Where did the icons go??

Any ideas to help would be greatly appreciated.

The programs still work as if they were in the system tray, the only thing that is gone are the icons (but not all of them).

Thanks again.

I'm running vista ultimate 64 bit... and I have logitech setpoint for my peripherals and I also have a program called thunderbird tray that keeps thunderbird hidden so that I know when my email comes through... however the two don't want to stay in the system tray on a reboot. The setpoint is always set to stay there... and the thunderbird tray has its setting changed back to not be in the system tray when i reboot. Is there anything I can do to keep these two programs running on startup?

Answer:Not staying in system tray!

whats the problem, setpoint is still running right. Any ways, setpoint intrudes on games so its probably better that its not there.
