Notification Icons Keep Disapearing

I am having problems with the notification Icons. I pull the ones I want out of the overflow box onto the right hand end of the task bar but the next time I start my Laptop they are back inside the overflow box. I have tried opening the overflow box and clicking on "Customise" and setting the required Icons to "Show icon and notifications" but when I start up the are missing again.

Hello Kilgetty, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if your notification area icons will stick after using option one in the tutorial below to set them how you like.

Notification Area Icons - Hide or Show System Icons and Notifications

If they don't, then use the tutorial below to reset notification area icons, and repeat above again to see if they stick afterwards.

Hi Mr Brink, Thank you very much for all this information I have gone through all the instructions and will see tomorrow when I switch back on if all is well.

Well after all that work there was still no difference, all of my icons had returned to the overflow box when I switched on today. I even download a Microsoft Hot Fix that was supposed to cure this problem but it would not even install, a window opened saying that it was not suitable for my system although it was intended for Windows 7 64 bit.
Never mind I will just have to put up with it until Windows 10 comes along.

Task Bar Disapearing
If I leave the laptop unattended for any period the taskbar is disapearing. The only thing left showing is the windows start icon. The taskbar is locked to the bottom and auto hide is not selected. The only way I can find to get it back is a restart. Any ideas please:confused:
