    Cleaning up SYSTRAY

    I have two Icons in the Systray that I don't know WHAT they do or HOW they got there: Disc Doctor and 1-step back. I would like to get them out of the Systray but left or right clicking does not give me an option to remove or delete them. With Norton System Works on board I don't think I need Disc Doctor and with Clean Sweep capabilities I don't need 1-step back. HOW to clear them out Please???

    Hi Trebor

    Disk Doctor is a Norton Utility and 1-Step Back is probably Iomega's 1-Step Backup and Restore.
    You could try to find them in Start Menu or Windows Explorer and see if either has an associated "Uninstall" program.
    If that doesn't work, try "Add/Remove Programs" in Control Panel (Start...Settings...Control Panel).

    Have a Great day!!!

    Thanx Ken, Tried that but they don't show up in either place. In fact I can't FIND them anywhere except in the Systray.

    Re: Cleaning up SYSTRAY

    Open the two programs that they are associated with (Norton Utilities is definitely one; I don't know about Iomega, but let's assume it is). Generally, those programs have something like Tools/Options or Preferences. One choice on one of the tabs should be either to have an icon is the systray or to start when Windows starts.

    If you wish to just have the program not run at startup, you can go to Start/Run & type
    msconfig
    & press <enter>. Then go to the startup tab & uncheck what you don't want to run at startup.

    Finally, if it's just a question of your systray being cluttered, I use Tray Launcher & love it (haven't checked the URL for a long time, though)

    Cheers,

    Pajan:

    Read your post concerning the SysTray question...

    The MOST useful util I've found for researching/exploring the Win Startup is StartEd (http://www.outertech.com/)... take a look and I'm sure you'll be 'glad you did'...

    Re: Cleaning up SYSTRAY

    Thanx to all the HELPERS. I got rid of 1Step Back by going to Iomega Support and they said to Run msconfig, Startup tab, and scroll down to Iomega Backup Scheduler and unchecking it. Worked fine. Icon is gone from Systray. The other one I had labelled as Disc Doctor was MY mistake. It should have been disc Detector and I cleared that up through My Computer link.
