Suddenly lost two icons in my notification tray. The Audio Speaker and the Bluetooth icon. Check MSCONFig startup and the Bluetooth is checked. Looked at the audio in control panel and that is checked.
The time clock shows up in the tray along with the network icon.
Suggestions please how to recover.

Before doing a restore point I tried to remove the last program I installed (Redfox a dvd coping program) this brought back the Bluetooth icon. The speaker icon still missing. Is there a limit to the number of icons in the tray?

No no limit but look in Control Panel, Sound and see if there is a checkmark in front of "show icon ion taskbar".
