I'm not sure if this is the appropriate forum or not, I originally posted this question under Customizing XP, which was in error. My problem with XP is (nearly) every time I boot XP and log on, my system tray icons don't appear. Sometimes one or two of them will, but the others don't show up. The programs are running, it's just their little icons aren't there. To solve it, I can usually just log off, then log back on and they almost always all work the 2nd time. But WHY? It's aggrevating and time consuming! H E L P ! ! ! !
