Systray Icon Hidden

Please Help!

I have a 9100c digisender.  I right clicked on the 'hpnsjtr.exe' link icon in the systray and instead of choosing 'disable receive' - I chose HIDE ICON.  Doh!  Now I cannot work out how to 'unhide' the icon - I've checked out the properties of the link, I've even tried reinstalling!!  I just cannot get to view this icon in my systray again.

I am sure it is something simple I am not doing but if anyone can tell me how to get this icon back - I would REALLY appreciate it!

Thanks, Smiffffy

sure this program will have any property in its preferences......the only problem is u r not finsign it......:)

but u can try one more thing......uninstall the program......then delete it's folder present either in program files or windows......then goto START>RUN and type regedit , goto HKEY_CURRENT_USER>SOFTWARE, then look for the registry entry of this program.....delete its registry folder form the left pan.
do same with step for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE !!

BUT BE CAREFULL while deleting any registry entry........coz if by mistake u will delete any other registry.......u will not able to run the associated program normally!!
So just dlete the registry entry only if u r sure that this the right registry entry for this program.

BEST OF LUCK :)

Dear SheharyaarSaahil

Thank you for your comment - however - I've now found the answer and it was even easier than I suspected!  

Instead of going for the obvious I was making it more complicated than it was!  The only place I hadn't tried was to go directly to the 'HP digisender link' program listed in 'Control Panel'.  

If you right click and select OPEN.  Then go to Settings tab and re-check the 'show icon on taskbar' box, the link re-appears on the taskbar!  Thank goodness.

But thanks for the reply anyway.
Cheers, Smiffffy

I don't know what SheharyaarSaahil is talking about at all...
all you have to do is add a string value to your registry to make any application run when booted
goto
Start>Run>regedit

goto
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SOFTWARE
MICROSOFT
WINDOWS
CURRENTVERSION
RUN
goto
edit
add new string value
type a name any name will do
press enter
now double click on the new string and enter the path for the file you would like started.
Note: The Icon will only show up in the system tray if the EXE was built with the -
NOTIFY_ICON_DATA value
for more information on VISUAL BASICS do a search on GOOGLE for

visual basics beginner or advanced

but it will still launch when booted...
try it! , modify it!, love it!

have fun,
