Windows 7: System tray icons sometimes don't appear

System tray icons sometimes don't appear

Hi!

I have a fully updated Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 and sometimes some icons don't appear in the system tray when I boot up my PC. Then I have to reboot it in order to get them to show up. They are all set to "Show icon and notifications" in the notification are.

So why is that happening and how can I solve it so that they would appear every time I boot up my PC?

Thank you!

You can try a reset and see if that helps.
