I cannot LEFT or RICHT click, the Safely remove usb devices tray icon!

Hey i got a very weird problem!
I cannot LEFT or RICHT click, the Safely remove usb devices tray icon.

So its there allright, if i hover over the tray icon with the mouse, it even shows me a pop-up "Safely remove usb devices"
but i cannot click on it..!!!?

wtf is this? anyone ever had this before?
can i fix this.

USB flash driver can be ejected thru "this computer" but a usb HDD can't, so its very annoying!

maby it has something to do with a service i disabled? i allready checkt some things thru, maby i miss something here.. or maby its just an annoying bug.

looking forward for a solution, or a idea!

thanks in advance!

Optional information:

I have windows 7 profesional from MSDN
The icon workt before, but i did some service tweaking.

- Windows Firewall is completly shutdown
- I got Zonealarm extreme, i turnd it off also, still cant click the icon!
- Got no custom bars!
- Got no custom notifications.

Tried these thru run:

"%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll"


"rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL hotplug.dll"

both show me the remove dialog.

why the hell can't i click on the sys tray icon?

can i re-add the sys icon somehow?
