I'm sure others are familiar with this situation too. Sometimes Explorer goes to such a halt that the fastest way to sort it is to open Task Manager (with ctrlaltdel if the Task Bar is frozen) and kill explorer.exe, then restart it using File->Run..

However, after the restart some icons don't return to the notification area of Taskbar. This happens with ICQ and Folding@home, for example. Is there any other way to restore the icons than to kill the apps and restart them too?

seen this asked a few times, the answer is no, you have to restart said program to allow explorer to know its there and assign icons etc.
