I'm sure others are familiar with this situation too. Sometimes Explorer goes to such a halt that the fastest way to sort it is to open Task Manager (with ctrlaltdel if the Task Bar is frozen) and kill explorer.exe, then restart it using File->Run..

However, after the restart some icons don't return to the notification area of Taskbar. This happens with ICQ and Folding@home, for example. Is there any other way to restore the icons than to kill the apps and restart them too?

seen this asked a few times, the answer is no, you have to restart said program to allow explorer to know its there and assign icons etc.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
