  1. shifting icons in notification tray


    I have seen this problem all over the internet with no resolution. The icons in the notification area of the taskbar are shifting to the right and left continuously. I have factory reset the computer and done a clean reboot. There are no additional programs installed. All driver updates for the Dell Inspiron have been completed. I've uninstalled the touchscreen interface. Dell Tech Support wants me to pay $236 for a year's subscription to solve this issue despite that the issue is not user error, but their own hardware / software. The computer is only 1.5 years old but processing slowly due to this bug.

    :)
