they disapear from the task bar, i have mine set on hide unless i move cursor down

nothing appears at times or only 1 goes missing


its not that thing were several of the same type are stacked either

i thought it was just a glitch with the last xp patch before support dropped

thats when it started happening to me


its not a real problem but i was just wondering if a fix was available for it


no rush 8)

The last XP update was nothing more than a download of the Malicious Software Removal Tool.  It's been that way for over a year now, unlikely (IMO) that there is any connection with your situation.
