Network Icon Disappeared!

/*--- holy mAcar00ns!! --- */

My Network Icon and Volume Icon disappeared from the Windows Vista taskbar for some reason. If it happens to you, right click on the taskbar and select Properties (at the bottom). On the Notification Area panel, you'll see the System Icons section, if the icons you want are unchecked, check them.

The problem is when they are grayed out. In this case, the first thing you can try is restarting explorer.exe. Go into Windows Vista task manager, and end the process. Then restart it by clicking Create New Task and typing in explorer.exe

If that doesn't do it, then you need to go into the registry editor under:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify key.

And delete from there, IconStreams and PastIconStream.

Now restart explorer.exe again just as before. The icons probably won't show up still. Now all you need to do is right click on taskbar and go to Notification Area panel and enable the missing icons by selecting their checkboxes.

Credit where it's due.
