Default Bluetooth Notification Area Icon Disappearing...

Hi, I have a Trust Bluetooth dongle, which works perfectly. I use it
to connect a Logitech Laser Mouse and an LG L600V, the latter thru its
own software. Never had a problem. Lately, the bluetooth icon which
used to sit in the system tray (notification area) is gone. I have
checked the registry and the relative key is set to 1.

If I open bluetooth thru the control panel, I uncheck apply check
apply, the icon reappears and works perfectly, until the next

restart, where it's gone again...

Considering:

- SSPD Discovery Service is Disabled
- UPNP Service is Disabled
- Registry Key is set to 1

Any suggestions?

Regards, Lupo

It could be a bug in Windows. When my Windows Explorer crashes it takes out
the minimised icon of the Task Manager in the system tray (notification
area). Even when re-started (and minimised) the TM still disppears until
Windows is rebooted.

This sounds a lot like your problem.

I take it a restart temporarily fixes the problem?...

Hi, the problem sounds very similar, but the other way around. If I
disable enable it stays... as soon as I restart, it goes away
again...

The funny thing is that upon restart, the icon is gone, but the "Show
Icon" thing is checked in the bluetooth properties...

Try re-installing the BT s/w or Windows.

See, the trust s/w is pretty messed up... I installed once, then
immediately removed it... Reinstalling OS is definetely a no-no: I
haven't reinstalled in about 3-4 yrs (about from 1 yr after xp came
out...). I have 51 disabled services, I norton ghost everyday and the
system boots up in 51/52 seconds, with a/v, firewall, getright,
topdesk, etc... installed at bootup...

As u said, it's probably an OS glitch and, since I can access the
settings thru cpl and everything connects and works flawlessly, I'll
let it be until I eventually come up with a solution...

I have this golden rule: "If it works, don't fix it!". Being tempted
by having everything just perfect is normal, the problems, headaches,
heartburns deriving from that are, most of the times, not worth it...

Thank you for your time and patience. If you see anything interesting
or come up with a solution, pls either post here or e-mail me
directly...

Hi, again! I solved it! I remembered I have a program from
sysinternals called processexplorer and run it before playing with the
enable/disable thing in the control panel...

If I run the following command line on startup:

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\rundll32.exe"
bthprops.cpl,,BluetoothAuthenticationAgent

I get the icon in the system tray with usual/full functionality...
