How to restore the FIPS tray icon after Windows explorer crashed?


Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption was installed in FIPS compliance mode including the FIPS feature.

After a crash of the Windows explorer, the FIPS tray icon is no longer displayed for the current Windows session.
Since Sophos SafeGuard Disk Encryption 4.60.0, the FIPS tray icon is also restored after the explorer has been restored.
