When I start clipboard the icon appears briefly in my system tray then disappears. Running Windows XP Pro v5, sp3.

Same thing started happening to me.  Even though my preferences are set to start with Windows startup, CHS does not start.  If I start CHS myself, the tray icon flashes, but the program does NOT run.
Alt-Tab does not reveal anything.  BUT, ClipboardHelpAndSpell.EXE does show up as a running process in Task Manager (mem.usage=5,840k, 144 handles).

let's see if it's actually responding: hit ctrl+alt+Q, see if a menu pops up.

Yup, the menu popped up, and recent clips are visible. Got the main window and thought I'd check the "stay on top" View option, but nothing changed. Everything is still hidden until I do ctrl+alt+Q again.

try this for me, i think we have seen this before:
EXIT chs completely.
confirm its exited by checking task manager and make sure clipboardhelpandspell.exe is not running.
now run the program yourself.
now do you see it in the tray?

if so, then what we have here is a problem where the tray icon is missing when its run in automatic startup mode when windows boots.

That was it.  I have now unchecked automatic startup and instead placed a CHS shortcut in my Startup folder.  That should accomplish the same thing without the bug. Right?

there is nothing at all wrong with putting a shortcut in your start menu and disabling the option from within CHS to start with windows -- nothing bad will happen -- but lets see if it solves the problem.

i will try to fix the problem on the next release either way.
