    For a couple of days I kept getting the error meassage shell_notifyicon fail. Now I cannot download a lot of sites on the internet. I scanned the computer with the norton pro 2003 anti virus software and found no infection. I am running Windows 2000Professional.

      “Shell_NotifyIcon Fail” Error Message Occurs When You Log On to Windows 2000
      The information in this article applies to:
      Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional

      This article was previously published under Q319008
      When you log on to Windows 2000, you may receive the following error message:

      Shell_NotifyIcon Fail
      You may receive this error message repeatedly when you first log on to Windows.
      This issue may occur if you installed a UMAX VistaScan scanner and you configured the VistaAccess program (that is included with the UMAX VistaScan scanner) to automatically load from the Windows Startup folder.
      To resolve this issue, remove the shortcut to the UMAX VistaAccess program from the Startup folder:
      Click Start, point to Programs, point to Startup, and then right-click UMAX VistaAccess.
      Click Delete.
      Click Yes to confirm the deletion.

      NOTE: If you remove this shortcut, you do not remove the UMAX VistaAccess program. To run the program, click Start, point to Programs, and then click the program.
      Restart the computer.
      Contact UMAX to inquire about a possible update for the VistaAccess program. For information about how to contact UMAX, click the appropriate article number in the following list to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
