    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?
