    Hi cheater87

    Some more info on operating system, etc may be of use.

    Do you mean the 'System Tray' Icons showin the programs which are already running? [lower right of screen]

    What programs are running, in background. WormGuard [protection installed] has ben known to cause SysTray Icons to disappear every now and thn, stopping the service and restarting usually brings them back, but if you are online at the time, and your Firewall one disappears, I would NOT stop that service until offline or reboot.

    Now, even though the Icons may have disappeared, check with Task Manager and look for the services. They shuld still be runnning.

    I usually have SpywareGuard drop out occasionally, and simply stop the main service and then restart.

    TASSIe..

    They have also been known to disappear after a Windows System error. For example; you experience an application hang that requires a Ctrl-Alt-Delete...when the task finally ends the screen refreshes and the taskbar icons are gone. This can be fixed with a simple reboot.
