Hi there, thought I'd ask a question myself. I have XP Home sp2 (all updates installed) and I've had this problem for a little while. The taskbar decides to load some things and not others sometimes, most annoying of all is when it leaves the volume control icon out. I still get sound, but I just have to open control panel to adjust the settings. I have quite a few that are supposed to load (like internet security, printer software (2), nokia software (2), speedfan, lan, sound, safely remove hardware (for backup HDD via USB) maybe more, I'm not too sure anymore. Half the time whenever I load windows it's like it is choosing "yes I'll put that one on today" "no, you can have the day off". How can I get the taskbar icons to always load? Is there some way to force them on? I like them all there, they should be all there. And no, I don't have "Hide inactive icons" selected, I hate that feature and never use it.
It's a random selection, but usually the same ones don't load, like volume, and one of the nokia (synchronise), and the printer control program, and the safely remove hardware. Not as often, but sometimes Speedfan fails to load at all.
I know some programs load properly, like even if the printer icon isn't there, I'll still be able to print stuff. Anyone else have the same type of problem? I have always noticed this problem, even after changing hard disks, sata cables, complete re-installs of win xp, I'm wondering maybe it's the motherboard?
Sorry I've double posted, I thought Firefox had crashed on me, one can be deleted
