icons in win xp notification area dissappear

  watchdis 20:22 27 Jan 03

after installing tweak xp to my new laptop icons in my system tray began to dissappear. restarting the computer didn't help neither did fiddling with taskbar properties. this happened on my last laptop and i suspected it was tweak xp then i got a new lap top and had no problems until i installed tweak xp and almost straight away the icons began to disappear. task manager shows that the processes are still running. i wrote to tweak xp and they promptly replied that it was nothing to do with their software. i have seen a similar problem posted on the annoyances.com forum so i am obviously not the only one with this problem. can anyone help? i don't want to have to reinstal windows again.
