Windows 7: Notification area icons revert to default

Notification area icons revert to default

My notification area will not stay customized. I have set 5 icons to always show, but after a windows update, scan by MSE or even after a reboot, the area changes back to the default of only showing the volume and action center flag.

Is there a setting anywhere to "keep" the customize settings?
