Windows 7: Losing Icon From Taskbar's Notification Area

04 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Losing Icon From Taskbar's Notification Area


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 ?

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!

From OP:


Think so.

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

Thanks for help,
