Icons gone from tray

Icons for the programs I have installed don't always show up on my system tray. Then all of a sudden they do, tried reinstalling the progs to no avail. Then they go again. Why why why?

Which version of Windows?

Care to mention some examples of the programs?

XP sp2 with all updates. I have compro tv, should be 4 things for this: IR, schedule, ulead & tweak yc. Nvidia icon for fx5700le, and the icons for my belkin wireless desktop. The printer status thing goes away too as does the volume control.

Sorry to ask a silly question, but they are not being hidden are they? Click the < at the left of the tray to show all the icons.

No I don't have it set like that, when I right click toolbar <properties>hide icons <customise> the icons in the past items bit don't match the correct description. Eg the icon for comprotv schedule is red & looks like an internal human organ. Its desc. says windows task manager.

I don't understand how they could be messed up.

Sometimes the Quick Launch feature goes walkabout and you end up with no icons on the taskbar. Try right-clicking the taskbar, the 'Properties' and ensure that Quick Launch is ticked. Then click OK, or Apply. I have some software which causes this to cease functioning on occasion, but I just reset it again.
