    Are you referring to the systray icons (next to the clock)? Have you got a small arrow next to the icons? If you click on that can you see the lost icons? If you can, you can stop certain icons from auto-hiding in the systray.

    Right click on a free space on the task bar and select Properties. On the Taskbar tab click the Customise button at the bottom. You will see all the icons listed and using the drop-drop menu you can select what sort of actions you would like to have with your current items eg, always hide, always show, and hide when inactive.

    Give this a try.Its worked on this problem before and should stop your icons from coming and going at startup.

    Go to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add Remove/ on the left hand side click on Add/Remove Windows Components and untick Networking Services and then reboot.
