Windows 10: Avira icon on system tray not showing
it is a real SHAME this BUG for Avira
I mean no disrespect, @p060477, but it has been pointed out several times that:
Lack of support is just one of the disadvantages of many of the 3rd-party "free" AVs.
The help available for Avira Free is limited to a Peer forum ( other users only) if you need technical help from Avira they expect you to purchase a licence - which is their decision and is similar to a number of other software providers who offer a fully working free version and Paid for help
I would not expect that a solution based on complaints here at tenforums will be forthcoming from Avira any time soon.
I'm sure this is frustrating for you.
At this point, possible strategies might include:
- Putting up with the bug; OR (as others have done)
- Upgrading to the paid version of Avira; OR
- Changing to a different AV
Just a friendly suggestion,
I have the premium licensed version and have the same problem. No solution found.
you are true..but..in that case some other systrays icons disappear as speedfan or gpuz for ex...and the avira icon is a dummy cause if you stopped the real time protection the umbrella remains open ..not closed as it should be..
what a real shame for avira
what a BIG BUG ISSUE
I made an account just to comment on this thread.. lol..
If you are still having an issue with this, please try
Right click "Show hidden icons" arrow
Click "Task Manager"
Under "Background Processes"
Find "Avira Service Host"
Click the expand arrow
Right click "Avira Service Host" (the one with the gear icon that is in the expanded view)
Click "Open Services"
Locate "Avira Service Host"
Right Click and click "Properties"
Click the "Log On" tab
Check the box for "Allow service to interact with desktop"
Restart your computer
Let me know if this worked for you. It worked for me. Running Windows 10.
Hi my dear friend.
i think its not avira problems, its related to windows, because tray icon of dell quick set application has a behavior like avira tray icon.
maybe you're right BUT
how many s.o are there..
and how many progs are there..?
so is the prog that MUST be available with s.o changes and not the countrary..
so this is a very BIG AVIRA BUG
also for its PREMIUM paying customers
what a SHAME..
not solved on win 10 home build 1607 the anniversary update
the AVIRA BUG still REMAINS
Just an FYI I am also running Windows 10 version 1607.
Would you please screen shot or list the Avira related "Background Processes", "Startup" and "Services" in the Task Manager and if they are running or stopped?
hope you followed very closely the 3d..the issue is in the avira service host that is really impossible to start..i mean that is stopped and if you try to start it it stopped in a while..
this is the very BIG AVIRA BUG ISSUE
I searched to see if anyone addresses this issue and didn't find a thread for my exact problem, pardon me if I missed it...
I used to have a bluetooth icon showing in my system tray/notification area, which was a nice convenience. It disappeared...
I would like to find out how I can customize the actual images(icons) displayed in the system tray.
This is my current system tray -->
Icons I want to change include BitDefender, Chrome, and OpenVPN to make them better fit the new...
I have been having some weird problem with One Drive and have received several suggestions to look at the settings of One Drive by right clicking on the System Tray One Drive icon. That icon is not in the System Tray. How do I find it?
My Windows 10 system tray looks like http://puu.sh/jB7xz/a2efac640e.png for both large or small taskbar icons. The spacing between systray icons are larger than in previous versions of Windows.
Nearly everyone's screenshots of W10 have systrays...
Well as you can see in the screenshot Vuze is running, up 5 times apparently!
It isn't obviously, and I can only right click on the icon on the lower right, but this is annoying. Any ideas of how to resolve it?
