    Taskbar Icons missing in windows 7-What to do?

    I was using windows XP professional from last 2 years which worked absolutely fine for me. However it was a bit slow so i installed windows 7 which worked well for me upto 6 months but now i have lost Taskbar Icons. I have checked almost all settings in control panel but failed to find anything which allow you to hide or show the taskbar icon.What should I do to fix this issue?

    To fix this issue,open Run command by pressing "windows key+R".Now type "regedit" in the text box and hit the enter button on your keyboard.It will open the Registry editor window.Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\TrayNotify.Here you will have to remove the two values "IconStreams" and "PastIconsStream".Once done,exit the registry and restart your computer.It will fix your issue. However if you are finding any difficulty or error in between then feel free to post your query here.
