    The boot.ini is the file responcible for booting your computer and should look something like this:

    [boot loader]
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect

    This will boot Windows XP from the C: drive on the first partition of the first Hard Drive ie:disk(0) partition(1)

    do a search for it on your system and open the contents in Notepad (make a copy before playing with it).

    Your system is probably hiding inactive icons in your system tray. To find out right click on the taskbar, and select properties from the context menu that pops up. A large box should popup and you should see an option to the bottom of the box. The option is labeled "hide inactive icons". Remove the check from the box to the left of the label to display all the icons in your system tray. Or leave the check box to hide the icons after a period of time. Good luck, and hope this helps.
