Default Missint Taskbar Icons On Certain Bootups

When I log on to my computer, some of my systray icons are not shown. If I log off and then back on, however, every icon is shown. Is there anything that I can do to get the icons to show without the hassle?

windows 7? that is actually quite common error. simply explanation is that your user hive (registry) is becoming corrupt, and on certain boots it is unable to load part of registry.

This is quite common when you upgraded from one beta/rc build to another beta/rc build.

Sometimes can happen on clean installs of windows 7 as well. Sometimes it can go away, sometimes it won't. really only solution is reinstall.

note: sometimes when it goes away, it might come back after few reboots.

This box is the vista one.

I did do a reboot and all icons came back but i did a scandisk to check out stuff and no errors were found and event viewer had no bad logs so alls good their.

Must be an app that is installed or something cuz i had this a year ago with certain devices or software installs.

Weird cuz i dug up some dirt on this and others had this too with XP vista and even 7.

yes it can happen in xp/vista/7 etc... it is quite common on win7 beta/rc, especially if someone does an upgrade from one build to another.

like i said basically the registry is corrupting, sometimes it goes away, sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes when it goes away it will come back.

I installed Windows 7 RC build 7100 fresh and I get missing icons in my start menu where the most recently used programs are and sometimes in my taskbar. Most of them have came back over time but my Halo shortcut is still showing the generic Microsoft icon instead of the Halo one. The shortcut works fine however.
Is this the problem you are describing?

its different, my windows 7 build 7229 is also suffering from it.

for instance, i boot it up and deskop icons are missing, taskbar is on bottom, and there is desktop.ini file on desktop. go to log off and log in again and it is back to normal.

note: normally my taskbar is on top
