Windows 7: Change to taskbar notification is not permanent

Change to taskbar notification is not permanent

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I use MailwasherPro to deal with spam. The default behavior for it is "Only show notifications" and when I change that to "Show icon and notifications" that change is not permanent. It will eventually change back to the default behavior, usually after a reboot. Ideas?

The icon will show when in use for a bit. Meaning it will only show for a bit then go away. Unless you put it and have it set to always show icon.

Plus make sure you set it correct in the program as well as the default notification system in win7

Drag it out of the box into the taskbar.
