Each time I start (or re-start) XP Pro, I get an incomplete or different set of icons in the taskbar. Yes, they are configured correctly in the "Customize Notifications" settings in the "Taskbar Properties" and the start programs settings. I even have the "show volume" icon configured to show in the "settings/control panel/sounds" options but it is rarely displayed. The 'Task Manager' shows the associated programs to be working even though the icons are not consistantly displayed. Any ideas would be appreciated. If I have missed this same topic in another thread, I apologize for the redundancy.
