Hiya

I am currently getting an error message "Tray 900 Icon - Unable to set tray icon" upon startup on two pcs.

One of the pc's has Windows XP Home and one has Windows XP Pro

The only common applications they share are;

Microsoft Office 2003
AOL Software
MSN Messnger

AOL has been uninstalled off one of the PC's (XP Home) and the error message still appeared

MSN Messenger has also been removed from the same pc and still the error message appears.

I am unable to re-install one of the pc's as there are no system discs, I can download the drivers n stuff for it, but this would take to long, I really dont want to have to rebuild the pc's because of this error message, but on one of the PC's it will not allow the anti-virus to be installed.

Any ideas???

Thanx

Hi,

I discover does at kelly-corner this might actually be applicable to your problem although it might seem obscure perhaps try it first!.

Icons - Keep in Place after Reboot

Normally when Windows exits it saves the desktop configuration, including icon location, appearance etc. This setting disables these changes from being saved, this is useful in both a secure environment.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Value Name: NoSaveSettings
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value called 'NoSaveSettings' set the value to equal '1' to enable the restriction. Exit your registry, you may need to restart for the changes to take effect. Note:  You want it set to 0.

Kind Regards,

Johan

Hiya

I spoke to a friend of mine and he managed to track to a phillips camera I installed, which could be causing the error as it has a tray900.exe

Thanx
