Most other programs don't throw an error message, but instead simply forgo creating an icon if they can't do it instantly.

(2) Then I used the (fantastic) tool by Cliff Cawley "Startup Delayer" (http://www.r2.com.au/software.php?show=startdelay) to put delays in for "non essential"
And, as a final remark, retest from time to time whether the problem has disappeared on its own, particularly after installing a service pack. Explorer.exe is a Windows process that is run automatically at startup and remains an active process. D. That assumes of course that systray even HAS a queue.
The ones concerning Task Manager are described in the next chapter, because they can be too easily mistaken for the main problem described in the other chapters.

The desktop icons would completly dissapear, or they would show up every few seconds and dissapear again. This will close the desktop except for Task Manager. Malwarebytes
reminds us that, if other icons disappear for good and never reappear, we should check first whether the programs are started at all. Yes, my password is: Forgot your password? In both cases using 7 Pro.
I have been struggling with exactly the same problem for long and Microsoft could not get at any reasonable solution. rtyuiiJul 13, 2015, 11:56 AM Or even better, try restoring to previous day or a set date, maybe it will help CazauxxJul 13, 2015, 12:21 PM rtyuii said: Or even better, I had already found out, that it was sending UPnP requests over the network at that time, but did not really know what to do, as simply disabling the UPnP service Thanks for the very helpful and time saving article I found on the internet Amazing that the solution from Francesco Saverio Ostuni, such an obscure and seemingly unrelated setting would restore
This has solved strange out of memory errors, dialog boxes missing buttons, and many other strange issues. Out of curiosity, I ran those commands at the time of this post (with all my icons present), and received the same errors as before.

On two of my computers this solves the problem entirely, even though other workarounds, like the systray_cleanup.reg file mentioned below, don't work. From the Applications tab click on New Task and type in explorer.exe and see if it brings your icons back. Here is a fix that works for Windows 2000 and may I have tried virtually every so-called "fix" I could find online, and NONE of them worked, until today, when someone pointed me to your site.

missing [Solved] (Solved) No Desktop icons, taskbar...nuttin! Any registry fixes? How can I turn off this functionality in Windows 7? All tray icons appeared on reboot.
It is important for all of us to also learn which one didn't work. I restarted it & waited, thinking that the icon will come back but nothing happen. In Windows XP, Active Desktop is always turned on and cannot be disabled. In the notification area properties you'll notice an option to customize how explorer handles pevious tray icons.
Reload to refresh your session. This seems to work fine for me as well. I already had UPnP disabled, so I moved on to the first registry file (systray.reg).
