Hmmm.... this seems to be a HIDE/SHOW ALL thing... is there a program that i can select what i want to always hide/show?

i want my IMs like yahoo, MSN and Skype as well as my voice chats like vent, GSC and teamspeak to always show.
but passive things or stuff i hardly ever use i want all ways hidden.

i can set them every time i start my computer and they stay like i want them... but as soon as i restart it then they are all reset. :'(

Are you saying that "Hide Inactive Icons" doesn't work for you (http://www.xp-tips.com/hide-system-tray.html)? If so, the only 3rd party app I know of that works is not cheap. PS Tray Factory will do the job (http://www.pssoftlab.com/)

well the system settings work until i restart my computer then every thing is "hide if inactive"... but this app seems to be what i was looking for... we will see if it works when i reboot... if so then i will try and get it.
