Hello! This is a more specific question rather than the one I wrote about Systray... There were two restore points in my system before I proceeded with a software installation. Following someone's suggestion, I ran msconfig to do a selective startup before the software install and unchecked "load startup group items". I did a Ctrl Alt Delete to see what programs were running and found Explorer and Devldr 16 were up. Knowing I had the two system restore points, I proceeded with the install even though Systray was not running. The next day I decided to cancel the install and went into system restore but could not find any restore points! Every date was blank. Not one restore point was to be seen. Did not having Systray running allow the software to alter my system settings??? Do I need to correct something??? Thanks.
