system tray HotSync icon
      #16497 - 10/17/04 10:52 AM

For the past few days, instead of the normal "HotSync" icon in the system tray of Windows XP, I'm getting just a small black rectangle. If I mouse-over it, I still get the yellow popup message "Last HotSync: etc." and I can click on it and get the same options for setup.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

Jim

Have you tried closing Hotsync and then reloading? Rebooting XP? Reloading Hotsync may solve it. Sounds like the Systems Tray memory area became corrupted unless the Hotsync program file itself is corrupted. Also, check you color settings in XP. Displaying the wrong icon color density will cause it not to display properly.

Did not try closing & reloading HotSync. Did restart Windows XP several times (over the cours of a week) and still the same thing.

Strangely enough, just today the tray icon appears normal (red & blue circle with arrows pointing in). I have no explanation -- just one of those wierd things, I guess. Wasn't really a big deal anyway, I could still synchronize just fine, and still could access all the settings. It just puzzled me.

Thanks for your advice,
Jim
