    OS XP Pro
    Why does my windows notification area (small toolbar bottom of right hand
    side) only show four icons for background processes that are running.
    I have customised it properties>items always show, but it still will only
    display the four icons.
    Is there a limit on how many icons can be displayed?
    TIA

    Maybe the processes you are not seeing are not supposed to show on the
    taskbar. You should be seeing (if you've got them running) - firewall
    - AVP - mail - volume.

    alt.warez.uk? Is that another name for an XP news group?

    Sorry about that, clicked the wrong group. I am sure you will understand.
    Can you help with the problem at hand?

    Seems like Arse had a good answer. But you could ask over at
    microsoft.public.windowsxp.general

    You may need a 3rd pary app that will sit on the tray bar and show you
    all the processes running on your machine.
