Hello Wideglide,

It depends on the program if it places a icon in the system tray (notification area) or not. If it does, then there may be a setting in the program to check to turn the icon on.

What programs is this for?

This programs just show up one time,and hide another time.
For instance:Winpatrol.

I found this in the Options in WinPatrol that you can double check to make sure it's unchecked to have the tray icon.

thanks.

Thank you.
The option is set to show the icon.
The problem is,it sometimes shows up,and it sometimes hide after a start/restart.
I have the same problem with about 3 other programs.

Thank you,
I found this topics by myself and used the reg key.
After customizing the task-bar icons option,all is working correct now.

For now, you can reset the notification area icons to see if that may help.

However, we need to know what programs these icons are for, and if you checked their settings to make sure the icon is set to be turned on and/or not set to hide.
