SYS Tray preferences won't stick!

    Every time I boot I see items in the SYS Tray I don't want to see, so I
    go through the daily routine of telling the system to 'hide' them...

    Why won't these preferences stick!
    Is there a way to 'make' them stick?

    Is there a utility that will force it or something...

    If you wait 30 minutes to an hour, do the expected items become hidden?

    One or more options/settings in an ever-growing number of third-party
    applications may be disallowing the changes from "sticking." These include
    anti-spyware applications (e.g., Ad-aware's Ad-Watch, Spybot Tea Timer,
    SpywareBlaster, SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor, CounterSpy, WinPatrol, etc),
    anti-virus applications & security suites (Norton, McAfee, ESET/NOD32,
    Kaspersky, Trend Micro, etc.), and third-party firewalls (e.g., Zone Alarm,
    etc.).

    Note that temporarily disabling the application(s) or rebooting into Safe
    Mode may not disable the application's system protections.
