Anytime, there is a program not responding, and you hit Alt+Ctrl+Del and end the task, it always shrinks the system tray down to only a certain number of programs still running. Is there a way to 'refresh' the system tray without logging out and logging back in?

Do you mean it hides the inactive icons? If so, you can prevent it from doing so by right clicking on the task bar, selecting properties and removing the check mark in the "Hide inactive icons" option.

No, I don't mean that it's hiding inactive icons. Anytime a program comes up as Not Responding, I hit Ctrl+Alt+Del, then end the task, all of my icons in the system tray disappear.

That used to happen with the 9x core, (explorer.exe trouble), but I don't see that happening on my XP system. Don't know.
