    If it's an Intel display adapter & the display adapter was obtained separately from the motherboard then Intel.
    [otherwise the source would be the computer maker for pre-built computers]
    Custom built, built in display adapter, so I should just uninstall in the Device manager?

    Just get its driver from the motherboard maker. If they do not provide anything then get it from Intel [assuming it's still in support]. You can use their Intel Intel Driver and Support Assistant for this.
    Intel Driver and Support Assistant - Download
    Intel Driver and Support Assistant info

    The driver installation will take care of uninstalling the previous one & then proceeding straight into installing the new one.

    Before your reply I took a chance and uninstalled the display adapter driver 31.0.101.2112, automatically installed 31.0.101.2111 in the device manager. If there's a problem associated with it, I can always restore a backup image.

    I think 31.0.101.2112 was a optional update, so the earlier 31.0.101.2111 was installed.

    Couldn't find the manufacturer update. Motherboard is 7 years old.

    The Intel® Driver Update Utility showed no updates for the display driver, but it did show updates for WI-FI and Bluetooth.

    I know that some people have the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. I have had some wi-fi inconsistency, but is it a driver problem?

    The only way of finding out is often to make a new system image then install a new driver to see if it makes any difference.

    Thanks so much for your guidance thru this experiment. I can't say for sure, but it "probably" led to what I would now describe as a return to normalized systray behavior.

    I say probably because I really can't pinpoint which of workarounds, if any, were directly responsible for this positive, hopefully permanent outcome.

    What I can say is I did I restored a Macrium image yesterday that I knew had a properly working systray. I then ran DISM and scannow. As always, it seems, scannow fixed some things. I then reverted back to that WU display adapter.

    Then I came to what I have discovered was the most crucial, step; performing a Windows update, because my recent experiences had consistently led to a recurrence of the breakage after an update. Which is exactly what happened.

    However, perhaps the biggest mystery in this scenario, something I have also experience several times during this process, is that upon returning to the computer the next day, the systray was again working fine. All I did was let it idle overnight. No further steps taken.

    How about that. Weird.

    Glad it's fixed.

    "The Intel® Driver Update Utility showed no updates for the display driver"
    When Intel don't support a device any more then their update utility will not show any updates for it.
    You can hunt around for the device on their website to find out what it's latest update was & download it manually but when I tried that it was a nightmare [I was never sure what I had found was what I thought it was let alone whether or not it was what I needed]. You are now using a WU-provided driver instead & that's what I would also do.


    All the best,
