How do I display the ESET icon in my Windows system tray (next to the system clock)?

Solution

By default, Windows 7 will not display your ESET product's icon in the Windows notification area (system tray). To place the icon next to your system clock, follow the steps below:

  1. Click the small up arrow next to the system clock in the bottom-right corner of your screen. 
     
  2. Select Customize from the context menu.
     
  3. Find the ESET GUI listing, and select Show icons and notifications from the drop-down menu on the right.
