I have multiple issues that began occurring at around the time that I installed
Hotfix for XP KB954550-v5, which was necessary by Microsoft Update. Here are the
annoying problems:

1. The volume control tray icon disappears every time reboot computer........must
"enable" it every reboot.
2. Hewlett Packard Deskjet 932c tray icon disappears every reboot, and must be enabled
same as volume icon.
3. On shutdown get message that "Spyware Doctor" program is not ending in time for
shutdown.............this happens EVERY shutdown.
4. On shutdown get message that ".Net Broadcast" program is not ending in time for
shutdown................this happens about 50% of the time.

Thanks for your help.

Who said you had to download the hotfix?
did you download Spyware Doctor or did it just appear. I would remove it and see if the problems persists

Hotfix "cannot be removed" using control panel/add, delete programs.
I ran a regedit cleanup program, and the 2 programs that did not end on time, now do end on time, and shutdown is now fast as it always was.

I am still left with the annoyance of having to renew BOTH tray icons (Hewlett Packard printer, and windows volume control). I can do this by simply logging off and then logging back on again. Shouldn't the computer log me off, and then back on every time I shut down and then reboot? Why must I log off/on every time I reboot, in order to renew those two tray icons?
