Win XP System tray notifications don't appear

November 27, 2011 at 22:33:16
Specs: Windows XP Pro (SP3), Penryn T8100 @ 2.1 GHz/3GB
My system tray notifications (the text balloon popups) no longer appear. I hear the "pop" sound when they are supposed to appear but I do not see anything. I rely on these popups for a few things - how can I get them back!? I've only had my OS installed for a couple days and the only thing I've done that I can think of since this started happening was use the HP product removal software, which is supposed to be the fail-proof last resort to uninstalling HP software, and it did nothing to uninstall either of the 2 hp software I have on my computer. How can I get my popups back?

nope, that didn't work. Neither did deleting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Interface\{FB852B2C-6BAD-4605-9551-F15F87830935} ITrayNotify
and restarting.
