Why is this? Most of the time they will show up when I start my computer up but sometimes they don't show up at all, and I will have to restart it to get them to show up.

my guess is occasionally the service doesnt start properly. possibly because of other tasks during startup. im not sure which service is responsible but you could probably increase the delay or something
