Minimizing Applications Disappear

By mbarlow ·
In the last two weeks we've had two machines display an odd behavior-minimized applications do not show up on the task bar. They continue to run, but aren't accessable except by Alt-Tab. This behavior even occurs on the default desktop. Different video cards, different resolutions, no matter. WIN 98 in a NT domain using roaming profiles.

I wondered if the application was set to minimize to the system tray or to leave the status bar icon enabled... If it was set to the first case the question seems to be answered. If not may there is some code jamming the windows event in order to launch the status bar icon. That or the application is not a standard aplication and does not make use of the status bar.
