Missing SysTray icons w/ Security Center 9 uprgade

I have been experiencing an intermittent problem after an upgrade to Security Center 9.0. When I reboot my PC, I find some of the systray icons do not load, the two that bug me the most are the 'Volume' icon and the 'Safely Remove Hardware' icon. Checking the sound settings, the 'Place volume icon in the taskbar' is still checked. If I uncheck, hit apply, recheck, hit apply. it shows up.

The volume icon is missing 95% of the time and the hardware icon is 50-50. I did not have this problem until upgrade to Security Center. No other software changes.

Doing a bit of internet searching, comments suggest that some software at boot may overlay an icon in a queue waiting to load.

I ran the McAfee Virtual Technician - all OK.

Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a solution to this problem?
