Since installing a Realtek driver & software package for my onboard sound (as
my sound card manufacturer has yet to release 64-bit drivers), the 3
notification icons - Power, Network, Volume - disappeared. Also, when
right-clicking the notification area, the 'Customize Notification Icons'
option is grayed out. On the 'Notification Area' tab of Taskbar Properties,
for the selected System Icons, Clock was fine, but the other 3 were not
checked, and grayed out.
Obviously, my first instinct was to remove the software and reboot, and that
has helped to an extent, as the Power option in Taskbar Properties is no
longer grayed out, and I can select it and it displays. But Volume and
Network are still unavailable.
Presuming that the selections made there are stored in the registry, I ran
Process Monitor while changing and applying the selection of the Power icon,
but that doesn't show up any relevent (or changed) RegSetValue entries.
So now, I'm at a loss, and I look to you to tell me where these settings are
stored, so I can get the Volume and Network icons back, an re-enable the
'Customize Notification Icons' option.
