Try:
Start -> Run -> Regedit      ......... Enter
Navigate to :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TrayNotify

You find 4 keys. Delete  ''IconStreams'' and ''PastIconsStream''.
Restart computer.

or open Task Manager:
GO to ''processes'' ..... find ''explorer.exe''
Kill process using  ''terminate process''
Go to ''application list'' .... click -> ''New process''  and type : ''explorer''...hit enter.

Now check tray application list.

Good luck,
cheers

Hi,
I didn't posted 2 comments, and till now I see only one.
For my tip. Are to ways to refresh your tray application list. Delete those 2 keys and OR REstart OR close explorer and reopen. On me works fine. It removes application from that list with the application that aren't to tray right now.

Regards

It worked!

I clicked start, click run, typed regedit, hitted enter. I navigated to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, Windows, CurrentVersion, Explorer, TrayNotify, then I deleted PastIconStreams, then I deleted IconStreams, then I restarted Explorer from task manager, then I checked for the anterior items and it worked!

The differences are that I checked the anterior itens before closing explorer from Task Manager and after opening it from Task Manager.
