Each time I restart Windows XP SP2, the apps in the System Tray differ.  Some appear all the time, some apps, like Hotsync.exe, Spysweeper, appear on the System Tray intermittently.
I cannot tie this phenomena with any specific app install, driver update, etc.
When everything is loaded properly (into the system tray) there are nine apps (icons) showing.  Depending on the restart there can be anywhere from 5-9 apps showing in the system tray.

Thank you.
