sunlaker, I'm assuming you're using Windows XP and that the icons are the ones in the Notifiction Area aside of the clock. Go to the link below and scroll down to "Notification Area - Icons Disappearing" and you'll find some possible solutions.
If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem.
No matter how many times I reset the properties for my task bar
the icons I want to be visible never appear. They start to show up after about 5 restarts but disappear by the next morning.
Any ideas how to fix the problem.
