Why does my Tray Icon's Behavior occasionally reset Windows 7?

Recently noticed that my icons settings in notification area are getting reset on system restart.

For example I specify Skype icon to always show icon and notification. After I restart Windows - it's hidden again. It's not just for one specific icon, it's for all of them.

Checking box "Always shows icons and notifications" works, and all icons appear, but this is not an option.

Please help.

The problem is solved by re-installing Windows 7.
