Finally thought I'd try to backup my docks and then restore them to see what happens.
Well.... it didn't go as planned. The docks were really screwed up. At this point I noticed my system tray tab was now empty.
So I restored the folders that held my configuration from a Ghost backup I took this morning. My docks came back fine except the tray tab is still empty. Tried creating a new ones but they were all empty too.
I also ran a system restore and that got things back to normal too but it didn't fix the tray problem.
Any ideas on getting my tray tab to show icons again? Really don't want a fix that will cause me to lose my dock arrangements.
