Hello... Running Windows XP2 Home. For some unknown reason when I booted up PC today my taskbar notification area no longer hides inactive icons when not in use, as it has in the past. I checked the settings in taskbar properties and hide inactive icons was in fact selected. Tried unchecking and re-selecting this option, as well as re-booting PC, but the icons in this area all remain visible regardless of programs in use or non-use. I have run anti-virus, and spysweeper scan which both came up clean. Have also tried system restore which didn't change the situation. Does anyone have any suggestions how to remedy this?
