    Tray Icon Recovery ?

    Hi,

    If explorer in XP crashes it normally does a stunning job of recovering, however it will always forgot to put some of the tray bar icons back even though those programs are still running.

    I remember having some software that prevented this back in the windows 98 days.

    Anyone know of a program compatible with XP that does it now?

    Much appreciated

    Thanks

    Richard

    I always hit control alt delete and then file, new task then type explorer.exe
    It usually brings back all my programs etc...

    I will look for a program that does that,

    it only works if the taskbar at the bottom is missing BW. It brings back all the programs, the taskbar and Icons in the system tray, or at least it does it for me.
