Apps sometimes don't show on system tray

I have a problem that sometimes some apps don't show on system tray but sometimes they do show. They don't appear on system tray but they are running if seen from task bar.

"Whenever you don't see your tray icons (but the application is running in the background), has Windows Explorer crashed?

If yes that why the icons disappear. Windows Explorer will (in most cases) restart. But some of the tray icons will disappear.

The only way I have seen around it is:

Either close that application & restart it. (Tedious)
Log off & login again."
