I have a Fujitsu Lifebook S series that runs on XP professional. My taskbar has been doing some strange things lately, by making icons that i need disappear. some of which are my battery power icon, volume control icon and safety remove hardware. I have checked that these have been made to show on the taskbar, but they still aren't there. Also, my windows explorer takes a long time to load whenever I start my laptop. What should I do?

Hi -
Have you thought there may be something else that is causing odd items like that -
Can you first scan with your Antivirus , then scan with Malwarebytes or SUPERAntiSpyware -
Next run a check disk scan - Click on My computer >Right click on local Disk (usually :C) > Click on Properties > Tools -
The top item should be Error checking , Click Check Now and tick the 2 boxes that are in the panel > Click Start and reboot your computer to do a full check -

Thank You -

icons that i need disappear

Have a look at the following link to determine if the situation resembles your own (it is hard to tell from your short description of the problem):

For your convenience, here is a partial quote from that link:

since a couple of days ago, my computer shows only 2 or 3 (instead of about 10) tray-icons on the right site of the taskbar ... when rebooted.
... When I log off and log on on again, all tray-icons are shown as in former times. After next reboot most of the icons are missing again.

Google is my friend. Make Google your friend too.
