Missing system tray icons

msetzer asked
Last Modified: 2010-03-29
Sort of an unusual problem.  

I have several start-up programs that have icons that show up in the system tray (ie Palm Hotsync).  

When I logon to XP normally, everything works fine and all the system tray icons show up properly.  

However, when I use Automatic Logon (via TweakUI or other) many of the icons do not show up even though the programs are in memory and work fine.  If I log out and log back on they'll show up just fine.  

Any suggestions?
