    Hi:

    If you go to Start-->Setting->Control panel ->Sound and Audio Devices you
    will see in device volume a tick for Place Volume icon in the task bar.

    You said"if you go to Start-->Setting->Control panel ->Sound and Audio Devices you

    No, I know this applied in XP, but in Vista 64bit you have instead a "sound" item under Control panel and you cant do as you suggest!

    Right click your Start orb and select Properties. In the Notification Area
    tab check the Volume icon in System icons.

    I was having the same problem with sound and network icons. Thanks for your post, it worked great.

    I tried your fix but the Volume icon is shaded - won't let me check. Any suggestions?

    Right click the Task bar and untick "Lock the Taskbar".
