I am using Windows XP Pro SP2. After isntallatio, i created user1 (=me) which I use for all my work. After several days, the sound icon in the sytem tray comes and goes. soemtimes it loads, sometimes it doesn't. If I go to Control-System-Sound, the "show ison" is clicked. if i unclick it, and then "apply" and then re-click it and "apply", the sound icon comes back////but thenext time I boot, it maty or may not be there. Any suggestions on how to overcome this? In the administrator's log in, the soudn icon always appears!

try start > run > msconfig > from the startup list tab, put a check on the systray.exe > click OK then reboot

i folllowed the list...but there are no options that look like systray.exe in the many listed there. I have used msconfig before to take out what i do not need for starting; but I do not see this particular one there. Can I add it????
