System tray icons disappeared and disabled in Vista


After doing a registry clean with Ace Utilities(an excellent OS cleanup utility) my battery and sound icons disappeared from my system tray.  Trying to enable them from the taskbar properties won’t work because they are grayed out there.  I found by killing explorer.exe and restarting it, they return.  I haven’t found a permanent fix yet, it keeps happening.
