Disappearing programme icons

Can anyone help? Why it is that the program icons in the right hand side of my task bar sometime are not visible? And sometimes the little arrow that hides the programmes is not visible either. On some occasions when I start my pc they are all there.

Anyone have any ideas

You have "Auto Hide Inactive Icons" enabled.

As soon as I locate it I will post.

Got it;

Go to Control Panel/Taskbar & Start Menu on the Taskbar panel near the bottom uncheck "Hide inactive icons".

Thanks, I've tried your suggestions and it works more often than not. I rebooted three times last night and they were all present. First thing this morning they weren’t. Started up the pc tonight and they weren’t there, just rebooted and hey presto they there again. Don’t know if this helps but I’m running Winxp home. I’ll try the MS knowledge base. anymore suggestions would be welcomed.

Thanks for your help

Win ME is a very strange beast with only half a mind of it's own.
