This happened a long time ago. Some people from our computer company came to fix our router connections, and while they weren't even able to set my computer up with the internet (We eventually found out my gateway was the same as my IP adress), they managed to make my system tray dissapear. It's been a few years and we havn't managed to fix it. But recently there's some new software and stuff like that which require it. I'm used to not having it, I have to use the task manager to close certain things. But I need it now, and I figured this was the place to ask. lol. So yeah, you get the task bar, where all the minimized windows sit, there's a blank space that looks like the task bar when nothing is using it, and then you get my clock. Wondering if anyone knows what's going on. I'm not calling that ***** computer company because they don't know jack so i'll ignore anyone giving me that advice.
