Re: taskbar icons disappear occasionally

Dear all,

Let me put my problem in another way.

Ideally,there should be 4 icons in the systray-Windows Firewall icon,AC
power icon,Windows messenger,Volume icon.
In most cases, there will be only Windows messenger & Windows Firewall icon
on the taskbar after boot. And sometimes, Windows Firewall will not occure
too.

But when I kill explorer.exe process and re-run it. All the 4 icons will be
there!

Can someone tell me what on earth the problem is?

I guess the systray.exe has bugs, but when I rename it, the problem is the
same, except that the AC power icon & volume icon will never occure. As far
as I know, that's normal because systray.exe is in charge of the two
icons(but not limited to).

Dear all,

New results found!

If i disable the eventlog service, and reboot, then everything is OK.
And if i set the eventlog service to be automatically started, then the icon
missing problem recures.

Is there something can be said?
