Taskbar Icon Issue (repost)

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Hello All,

I am having an issue when I boot up where only the Networking
Notification Icons are shown. I am supposed to be having:

2 Networking Icons
2 shield icons (One ISS and one Mcafee.)
A Device Removal Icon
2 HP Printer Icons
A Logitech Webcam Icon
A Sound Icon
A Dell Quickset Icon

To restore some of them I have to go into Taskmanager, Kill Explorer.exe,
and go to file->run and restart explorer.exe

To restore all of them I have to reboot several times, and even then it only
shows them 25% of the boots.

Anyone seen this before? Any Clues?

P.S. No, as you can see in the following picture, the little left-arrow
icon is not there hiding some of them.

    Did you rt.clk on the clock, Customise notifications & set those ones to
    'always show'?

    BTW, re-posting in 14 minutes is asking a bit much - some people do work &
    sleep.

    From the link below:
    "You may know this already, but the Windows XP task bar has an option to
    hide unused icons. So the reason some icons are disappearing might be that
    you haven't used them for a long time and Windows has decided that they
    should be hidden. To check this option:
    right-click the Taskbar
    select Properties
    clear the check box Hide inactive icons

    If this isn't the cause of the problem, then Microsoft's recommendation is
    to select "Lock the taskbar". It didn't work for us, though.

    Doesn't work for me either. Nor does the stuff at Kelly's page. The only
    advice that's worked so far is the only-temporarily-workable
    Logoff-Login-after-getting-to-desktop method. When is this bug going to be
    fixed?

    Addon:

    From posting on "microsoft.beta.microsoft_update.general" I have determined
    this to be true: (At least to the best of my knowledge.)

    1.) This issue affects only Windows XP SP2
    2.) This occurs regardless of beta status.
    3.) This is not a "Once in a blue moon" issue.
    4.) Log off and logging back in is a workaround.
    5.) Rebooting has an approx. 25% chance of fixing the issue.
    6.) This affects ANY system tray Icons that are set to start within the
    first minute or two of boot.
    7.) MOST of the time, networking icons appear regardless of if any others
    do.

    I reposted because the server deleted it, i witnessed it doing it. Im not
    reposting because of a lack of response. (As you can see the other didn't
    appear. Or if it did for you, disjoin and re-join and it wont be there.)

    Hey David where is it you think you are?

    Everyone here is a volunteer. This isn't your own private paid for tech
    support group. The person your yelling at out of kindness took the time to
    make a well intentioned (even if incorrect) response.

    An appropriate response if you must make one at all is "Yes I tried that
    thanks for your time." Not "READ THE WHOLE MESSAGE!"

    Yet another new suggestion, heck I'll try just about anything to fix this,
    though I don't understand what disabling uPnP detection across the LAN has
    to do with [1] Icons appearing, disappearing, hiding, not hiding, and
    refusing to appear as set, or [2] Toolbar disappearance from the desktop
    with Quick Start deselection. [1] is workaroundable with the Logoff-login.
    [2]'s solution seems to elude everyone so far.

    From the below url, "When SSDP Discovery service is disabled, new devices on
    the network cannot be found automatically."

    Are there any other interesting side-effects to this besides my network
    printer disappearing? Thanks.

    Dear lord! I hope MS releases a patch for this soon. Logging off and
    back on is a bit of a PITA.

    Don't know the technical reason for this. But, I haven't noticed any
    side-effects of disabling the Service, in my SoHo.

    Do you have a printer that's attached on the LAN as opposed to a LPT port?

    Following up one of the links given earlier, I tried the following and
    it seems to work for me:

    Open up administrative tools, select services and double-click SSDP
    Discovery Service.
    Select the Logon tab, select Local System Account and check Allow
    service to interact with desktop. OK out and restart.

    I don't think it would affect it, as even if you used UPNP to discover
    the Printer. TCP/IP takes over from there and does the transmission and
    recieving by IP.

    I tried it, and for the last two reboots all of my Icons work. But it
    could be just part of the % of the time that it does. I will try rebooting
    and working over the next day and see how it turns out.

    Thank you,
    David Rios

    Oh! I forgot to specify what I had done.

    I attempted to do:
    http://www.tech-pro.net/howto_013.html

    Eone of the suggestions worked except for the SSDP off suggestion.

    Like I said, it work's so far. But that may change. We will see over the
    next day.

    Well, I have to say the bug has not re-emerged since performing the reg

    As Stephen said, the bug has not come up since.
    Thank you!

    Maybe Microsoft will release a patch for this in the future?

    Of at least fix it for longhorn ^^.

    Thank you again for your time,

    The latest security patch from Microsoft (replacing ole32.dll etc)
    appears to have stopped this fix working.

    I just found out today after losing some of my tray icons, including the
    volume icon, how to fix them all very easily.
    Just "log off" and "log back on" and all your startup icons are restored. I
    know, sounds too easy, but it works.
