    Losing Icon From Taskbar's Notification Area


    Hello,

    Two Users on my PC.
    I'm "Administrator"

    I use a small program called ClipMagic.
    Works fine.

    The other user does not use it at all.

    After he does his thing on his "side" of the PC, and I go back to mine,
    ClipMagic is always gone from the right hand side of the Task Bar (the Notification area I think it's called ?) where the icon for it resides

    Really annoying.

    Any idea why, or what I might do to keep it there between the user switchings ?

    thanks,
    Bob

    Hi Bob,

    You may have a corrupted user profile, check here for more info: System icons do not appear in the notification area in Windows Vista or in Windows 7 until you restart the computer

    You can also try here: Notification area icons missing at startup or disappear after startup.

    Let us know how either of those methods work for you!

    Cheers,

    Have you set the icon to always appear?

    From OP:


    Hi,

    Think so.

    But what exactly do you have in mind that I should be doing also ?

    Thanks for help,

    were you two users using Switch User option or did you actually log out and other user log in? there are many questions to ask to narrow down the solution
