How do I get my NVIDIA system tray back in my Windows XP?
 
Hi.

Rarely, my explorer.exe will crash and relaunch. However, I lose my
NVIDIA system tray icon. Is there a way to get the icon back without
rebooting or logging off/on? I tried NVIDIA's control panel - View menu
- "Show Notification Tray Icon" option, but that didn't work. :(

Thank you in advance. :)

It's probably the Nvidia tray applet and something else that is loaded that
is causing explorer to crash for some reason. Sort that out and you won't
need to find a way to manually start it. Type msconfig in the run box and
disable/enable items under the startup tab one at a time until explorer
stops crashing. Then you will have the culprit. Unless it is being caused by
a hardware issue, like flaky ram.

It is not from NVIDIA. I just want to reshow the icon. That's all.

Does anyone know what process EXE file runs this system tray icon?
