Windows 7: Systray icons are not responding

Systray icons are not responding

Hey guys. I have a little problem lately.
My system tray icons sometimes are not responding (not the system ones, but installed software installed by me)! Like for example when I just turn on my laptop for a while they are all working, but latter not.
I don't have them many, only ESET Smart Security, Malwarebyts adn what is happening with them is that they are not responding if I try to double-click or right click on them, but I can open them from Start menu for example! and also uTorrent if I minimize in the system tray, it is not responding on double click, but it is responding on right click on it.
If you know anything about this problem, pleas let help me ))
