I am plagued by disappearing icons from my Task Bar.
They vanished…. I don’t know why but recently I installed Nero 7 Essentials and they all re-appeared? But, have subsequently vanished again. I have placed a check box in the volume icon in the taskbar" check box in Control Panel Sounds and Audio Devices. But no icon appears.
I would like to retrieve them all, but don’t know how.

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

Restore the Task Bar to Default Settings - #99 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
