Hello EEssam,

Are you sure your program is actually closing? (For example, have you checked in task manager -> Processes that its process actually has closed?

Regards,

Dabas

Yes, I'm using Application.Exit() and as soon as I move the mouse over the icon it disappears.

you need to dispose the NotifyIcon when terminating your application:

inside your Program class, do this:
           
static class Program
{
        [STAThread]
        static void Main()
        {      
                Application.ApplicationExit +=new EventHandler(Application_ApplicationExit);
                 // other tasks
        }
 
        static void Application_ApplicationExit(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            yourNotifyIcon.Dispose();
        }
}

I have a normal C# 2.0 Application. The Program.cs is created and a default form. My notifyIcon is located in my default form created in:
Application.Run(new FormFirst());

better you put the notify icon in the program class.
But if you don't want, you can create a form's Closing event handle and dispose there.
