Necessary background: I'm using a crippled version of Windows XP in which explorer.exe will not run, so I've been using the Task Manager's New Task dialog to run programs, copy files, etc. I am unable to reinstall because I cannot find my copy of Windows XP Professional.
I am using a program that is only accessible through the system tray's notification area—those little icons next to the clock. However, one of the consequences of explorer.exe's failure is that I don't have a start menu, system tray, clock, etc., so I can't access this program. Do you know of a program that replicates the behavior of the system tray notification area? Not a dock, necessarily—I can switch between programs just fine; I only need access to the notification icons that would normally hang around next to the clock in traditional XP. I've tried TrayModule and AquaDock unsuccessfully. Any guidance here would be greatly appreciated.
