      Description

      New Java Update Icon in the windows system tray is not clearly visible when the updates are available, This Icon when compared to the other System Tray Icon is not visible and with windows default desktop colors makes it more invisible and this may confuse the user.

      Right now, Java Update only notifies with a System Tray Icon and Ballon Tool Tip , when updates are available.(Balloon Tool Tip typically stays only for couple of seconds (30 secs??) ,

      Consider the scenario :
      =====================
      If user clicks the "Update Now" ballon tooltip and Icon appears in the System Tray, incase user has been distracted or just moves away from the system for 30 secs, He may be confused as the Icon is not clear and clicking on the
      "Update Now" doesnot notify with ballon tool tip or any other notification.

      The only way is to look for the Icon which is not clearly visible, this may lead in the confused state.
