Windows 7: [System Tray Icons](Some disappear when Explorer crashes/restarts)

13 Aug 2017   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 (Explorer_v6.1.7601.23537)(ntoskrnl_v6.1.7601.24150)
[System Tray Icons](Some disappear when Explorer crashes/restarts)

Some times Windows Explorer [SHELL/FILE-manager] will CRASH!! and restart... and
some times Explorer will be shutdown and restarted so a update for in my case Tortoise SVN recently...

SOME [System Tray Icons] WILL disappear....
Requiring I manually stop and restart those programs.. X(

The ones that just disappeared when Explorer just CRASHED on me..
  • Windows Action Center
  • TP-LINK -- USB Printer Controller
  • Realtek HD Audio Manager

That is all that disappeared this time..

SOLUTIONS!?? lol xD O_o

ooh yeah the other thought..
Looking at the process tree from Process Explorer (SysInternals)

I discovered process that were considered child to EXPLORER.exe
WERE abandoned from the Explorer.exe process...
and not all programs started end being put as a child-process to EXPLORER.exe

if I recall correctly... lol
