I'm posting this as I was shocked by a friends laptop... it seemed to be running quite slowly but didn't appear to have many applications running. How wrong I was! :lol:

The system tray showed 3 icons for things like volume and antivirus, but I clicked the little expansion arrow to see how many other icons there were and WOW :eek: There must have been over 15.

How that is possible I just do not know ;)

I've got 6 at the moment : Volume, Antivirus, Sidebar, WCG, Download Manager and a custom app.

I currently have 10, these 10 being: Windows Live Messenger (x2), RealTek HD Audio Manager, Safely Remove Hardware, Windows Indexer, Sync Manager (for my Creative Zen), OneNote, NVIDIA Settings, avast! and my Webcam Settings. Not currently got Outlook Express open, but if I did (which I sometimes do) I'd have 11.

In conclusion: nine more often than not, 11 occasionally.

15 and I can't be bothered to type em all out .
Was thinking what a lot of dumb schmucks you all are having a volume icon when most of you probaly have volume control on your keyboards same as me . Then I noticed that I have a volume icon aswell .
