On start up I see a dialog box saying

"I can't find a system tray"

on startup although there is a system tray displayed. I have tried deleting the compiz folder. What's the fix?

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 on an AMD 64 intel i5

I think you should go to USC(Ubuntu Software Center) and install dconf editor. Then run it and navigate to: desktop->unity->panel and set systray-whitelist to ['all']
