This really isn't a big issue but I've been wondering if there might be a simple fix out there anyways,
For what ever reasons, programs that suppose to show up in the toolbar next to the clock, some times just don't show up when I boot up my system, their running but they don't show up, one program is Halreader, a program that reads text out loud and some times steam, the gaming platform or what ever you wanna call it, anyways, its only after endtasking these programs and starting them back up, do they show up in the active toolbar next to the clock, this doesn't happen all the time but enough to get annoying, is there a fix out there or something that I can do that wouldn't require endtasking the programs?
Oh and there not hidden, their set to always show, rather their active or not.
When was the last time the OS had maintenance done ?
Have you tried to rebuild your icon cache ?? if no, try in cmd (windows key+r):
taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
DEL IconCache.db /a
shutdown /r /f /t 00
or (depending on windows version as i don't remember wich one is for XP and the other Vista/7, anyway it won't work on the wrong system so no trouble here)
open task manager and Kill Explorer.exe process then run cmd:
cd /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
Type attrib –h IconCache.db
Type del IconCache.db
shutdown /r /f /t 00
(The last command will restart the computer, so be sure to close and save anything that you are working on first.)
or the easy way but longer (in my opinion), Just Open Windows Explorer, and configure your Folder Options > Views to show Hidden / System Files. Next go to C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local folder and delete the hidden IconCache.db file. Reboot.
*** If windows won't let you delete the file, apply the first method to kill explorer.exe...
I've had this problem too (but only once in a while) usually I just log off and log back in again and the icons will show up again. I don't know of any really quick fix for it though.
In the start menu, type msconfig and go to the startup tab. Make sure the applications you want to startup are checked.
