Some (but not all) of the icons for open apllications no longer appear in my systray. Is thera ny way to get them to return?

what system are you using and do you mean the area by the clock?

Have you got two little arrows just to the left of the ones that do appear?

I was puzzled by the same thing until I found out that once you get above a certain number of icons windows hides the extra ones but that you can show them temporarilly by clicking the arrows.

If you want to get them all back click here

Then right click taskbar, Properties and untick Hide Inactive Icons.

Right click the taskbar and choose properties, choose customise and change the behaviour for your missing icons to always show....T

The suggestion from feb of disabling uPnP and SSDP discovery at start up seems to have worked (This appears similar to bretsky's suggestion as well). In addition, another application that was failing to initialize now appears to launch successfully.
Should I expect any problems from having taken these actions?

Not knowing what your system comprises of, if you do experience any problems just reset the upnp and ssup services.

It is a known fact that xp has a "bug" in the system tray, not all my ions appear at boot up even though system say the apps are running, and sometimes I have to reboot to get them to show or go to task manager to end the app and then restart it, and then it dutifully appears in the tray, a pain I know.
