    Icon dissapears from Notification area

    I am using a program called Roboform Manager. It is a password manager. It works just fine on Windows 8. The issue happening is I did a search for Roboform and there is an icon which say's Roboform Taskibar. I select it and it puts a Roboform icon on the taskbar. That needs to be there in order for Roboform to work properly.

    After awhile it dissapears and the software does not complete all of it's functions. I have to go through the same process again for it to work properly.

    In Windows 7 I was able to put this icon both on the Startup and allow it to start up from MSCONFIG. Now, I do not see Startup any longer and when I go to MSCONFIG startup tab, it does not show what is automatically starting up.

    Any suggestions would surely be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.
