sometimes when i boot up to xp some of my tray icons are missing. i checked
and they would be running in the backround. but i would like to know what
causes this and can i change it. i am running xp sp2 on amd 64 3200+ 512k
cache with 1gb ddr on an asus k8v se deluxe. i dont have that many programs
starting initially... just,

norton
perfect key logger
zone alarm
acronis true image monitor
java (a windows service)
and a few other things that take up less than 1mb of ram

can anybody tell me whats happening?

Right click on the Notification Area and select Properties. Is the box
before Hide inactive icons checked?

Hope this helps.

computer boots up fully. i can see that the proccess is runing in the
backround but the icon is not in the system tray. and no its not the
settings on the programs.

Ok, I got the same problem AFTER installing my Audigy I.
I was running on onboard sound for a week.
I'm using Audigy 2 ZS drivers for my card.
Could you please post your hardware configuration to see if
we have any hardware similarities.

Here's mine:
Win XP SP2
DFI Lanparty NF4 Ultra
AMD 64 3000+, 90nm @ 2000MhZ
MSI GF6600GT @ 561/1140
2x512MB Corsair Value DDR 400
60GB WD, 160GB WD, 200GB WD SATA HDDs
Audigy Gamer, Audigy 2 ZS drivers!

I haven't found anything relevant to this issue yet, but
will keep on looking. on older versions of XP (pre SP2) a
disabling of the UnPNP service is often recommended.
