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.

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!

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