I am running the latest version of Windows XP2 pro. v. 5.1. 2600. I am
experiencing instability with my task bar. Not all icons appear or seem to
disappear without reasons, during normal operations. Rebooting sometimes
helps but not always.. Any ideas???

You have three (3) choices for the icons in the taskbar.
Always hide, hide when inactive, always show.
Rightclick Start>Properties>taskbar tab>Customize button

Pierre,
Read my post "Can not load tray icon" 10 threads below this one. Pavel gave
me a good hint at my similar problem, which I used to eventually resolve my
problem.

Icons are missing or disappear, reappear: This happens for most Auto-Logon
users.

Methods/workarounds: Log off and Log back on, password protect your account
or disable SSDP and uPNP Services.

Sorry but, by customizing the task bar, hiding the icons or hiding icons im
ny network place do not have any effect whatsoever. Icons still appear and
disappeasr at their own will....

Hi Kelly,
I don't understand your comment about CDO (Collaboration Data Objects), I
use OE>msnews.microsoft.com>microsoft.public.windowsxp.general via
NNTP-Posting-Host, set up as detailed in your first URL Link
http://michaelstevenstech.com/outlookexpressnewreader.h....
The post I referred to has the reference
news:%23wHkc4noFHA.3608@TK2MSFTNGP15.phx.gbl..., if that is any help.
