Sometimes some startup programs dont start

Hi all, I have the following question. When I start windows, rarely one program does not load. Say it is not frequently, but sometimes I do not see the icon Winamp or the GpuTweak in the tray where are the other basic programs (antivirus, windows update ...). But although I do not see there, I have no problem opening the program.



This is normal? It is something that usually happens as a small bug?

3Colors, welcome to seven forums. It is probably the settings for your notifications. Here is mine

Sounds like in your settings some programs are set for only show notifications.

Click the little button circled in this pic to set it how you want it.

That means that these programs are not required to appear sometimes ?

Not in the taskbar. You can look at task manager tabs to verify they are running.

Today winamp did not appear, but I see the Winamp agent in the task manager.

That is normal if it is set to show only notifications. Some programs have options in their settings to show the icon if you want.

Thank you. Perhaps the question sounded something ... noob. But having windows 7 after using for several years windows XP and 98, there are things I will look new / strange.

There is always something to learn.
