    Running a new install of Windows 8.1, I've installed everything and noticed two notification are icons have no image and cannot be clicked.

    I've cleaned both Icon Cache, and System Tray Icon Cache from the registry but with no luck.

    Here is an image...

    Can anyone help with this annoying issue?

    What are they meant to be for?

    Tried removing and re-adding them from the Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Notification Area Icons section?

    Thanks MrMagic, I never thought of that. A 5 day migraine does things to your brain.

    Apparently it was a corrupt Dropbox Installer... I had to hide them both, clear cache and reboot.

    Problem solved.
