    The ewido program is running but the system tray icon is missing, how can I get it back?

    Grateful to any tip, :)

    Start ewido and get the systray icon.
    Right click on the icon and checkmark "Start with Windows"

    Recommend that you upgrade to the newest version which is named AVG 7.5 AntiSpyware

    Siliconman,

    I just downloaded and installed the avg 7.5, but the icon is still not there. In the main menu it says all is ok, I doubt its the program itself that refuses to show the icon. All other icons are there and ewido has been there since I started to use it.

    This is normal if your trial period has expired. You will get no tray icon after that, most probably because the resident shield is permanently "off".


    regards,

    Hi,folks: Are you using window XP? If so, I may be able to lend you a hand. If you are eager to try before AVG folks get back to their desks.:-*

    Hi,folks: This works for me, you may want to give a try. A word of caution. pls backup your files(using system restore or some).
    1.right-click my computer, then click manage.
    2.click service and applications (expand).
    3.double click services.
    4.in the service lists, right click SSDP Discovering Service, and then click
    properties.
    5.on the General tab, in the Startup type, drop down list, click Disable.
    6.click apply, then ok.
    7. reboot few times to see whether it works.
    8. If fails, go back to Startup type on General tab, change to automatic.
    9. reboot few times to see wether it works.
    10.If fails again. Pls sit tight awaiting AVG folks' rescue.
    GOOd LUCK.

    Perman,

    Now it works, but I cant figure a reason why SSDP should have anything to do with the system tray?? I understand SSPD is looking for UPnP items on the network?? Anyway, now it seems to work.

    Great thanks for the tip!
