    Today I noticed the volume icon on the task bar has disappeared. I went to the area where you can specify you want it to be visible but the box where I could click on volume is faded and I'm not able to specify I want it to be visible.

    How can I rectify that? Do I need to restore?

    If no luck with the above, perhaps THIS?

    I went to the "task manager" and disabled Explorer. I then rebooted and it's back on my task bar and also the grayed in boxes are now checked. Thanks everyone. You are the BEST.
