Blank icons in Win 7 systray

This has been bugging me for a while, we got the full version of 7 Pro through Microsoft Action Pack a few months back but i've waited until the general release as I thought maybe it would have been solved with an update of some kind before the full release.

Anyway, after leaving the PC on for a while, some of the icons in the systray are completely blank, double clicking them still takes me to the applications as per normal, but it's becoming a bit irritating now!

Here's a screenshot:

Anyone have any ideas? Google draws a bit of a blank (no pun intended :rolleyes:)

James, have you tried actually running the icons in the task bar? If you right-click on the start orb and choose properties you can make changes there (see screenshot)

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, doing that just repeats the problem, but shows them all at once:

But in the preferences menu all the icons are listed correctly:
