    Hello

    I recently did the 5.1 update and followed with a factory reset in order to get a clean install. Everything runs smoothly until out of the SMS preview.

I must have missed something or been more cautious when faced with fresh settings I get is more that.

    Any ideas?

    Four method is via the registry editor. If you are comfortable with editing the registry, give it a try.

    The easiest and safest way is three method.

  • Icon 'Remove hardware safely' is missing from the notification area

    I just reinstalled Win7 X 64 business but found that the icon 'Remove hardware safely' is missing from the notification area when I plug a USB key or external HARD drive (they don't work either by the way, I can view files in them no problem), I tried the solution of workaround suggested in http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-desktop/safely-remove-hardware-icon-missing-and-cant-eject/e9fda0a2-c308-4853-bf1d-a3926ff0fcd1?page=1&tm=1299855382970#footer , but it does not resolve the issue, I don't see the USB stick or external HARD disk in the dialog 'remove hardware safely '. The only way I can eject a USB device is click on the drive in windows Explorer and select "eject" while even "eject" is not available for an external HARD drive

  • startup, icons are missing in the menu bar

    After installing startup ElCapitan, icons are missing from the menu bar. There are empty spaces where start icons should be. Basically the icons are there but they are invisible.

    Be specific, or better yet show a screenshot where you expect to see the icons (you can use the application overview use the arrows to point to areas) and let us know exactly which apps you expect to see.

    Also, make sure that the apps that you expect to see are supposed to work in El Capitan!
