SisTray?

By rako ·
What is SisTray and if it is a Windows component how do I extract from the Win98 cd? My system tells me that SisTray has performed an illegal function.

If it is not Win98 what program uses it?

SisTray?

Systray is the program that displays the icons in the lower right corner of your screen.

Illegal Operations are caused when Applications cannot communicate directly
with the processor, they must access through the core Windows system files:

These files include: gdi.exe, gdi32.dll, krnl386.exe, kernel32.dll,
user.exe, user.dll. If an application attempts to access the processor
directly an illegal operation error is generated when a problem is
encountered.

The most absolute way to eliminate the error is to reinstall the software
separately or backup your personal data and use the Quick Restore.

You can also try the following -

1. Restart the computer
2. When the computer has rebooted, hit CTRL-ALT-DEL
3. Close ALLapplications running in the background via the End Task window
4. Close ALL except SYSTRAY and EXPLORER

Once this has been done, try using the computer again as you normally would
to see if the problems persist.

If the problems do persist, do a complete uninstall of ALL third party
software that has been installed and test the system.

If everything is performing correctly as it should, then re-install one
individual program at a time and test the system. If all goes well and you
have no errors, install the next program you originally had on the
system...

There were a couple of viruses around (I think last year) that had to do with the systray.exe file. The easiest thing to do to put a fresh copy on your system is to click Start->Run and type in SFC. Choose replace 1 file, browse to c:\windows\systemand choose systray.exe. You might need your win98 cd so have it handy.

Enjoy,

You don't always need systray.exe I haven't had it enabled on my WinME PC for almost 2yrs, here's a site that will provide you with lots of info on that & other running processes.

It could very well be a virus, but I would goto Start, Run, MSCONFIG. Goto the startup tab and uncheck almost everything. Leave systray and virus software if you have it. It should boot up ok now. Make sure you install some virus software and updateit online. Chances are even if it is a virus, you will prevent it from loading by following this procedure. You can also boot safemode to accomplish this task.

Hi! The other answers here make sense, but you spelled the problems app as SisTray. The Windows app is Systray. If you have an SiS video chipset in your computer, it may be the SiS application that allows you to control display functions. If thisis the case, you should uninstall, and reinstall the SiS application.
