I would like help with the Windows Vista, volume icon disappearing as I already have a problem with the volume bar in hardware and therefore cannot view the volume level.
The icon disappears frequently for a day and then reappears.

There is a good fix written here. Only it lacks to Back Up Registry first. Please Back up First
Using Windows

Registry edits can be potentially dangerous; we can revert to the backup if needed.
Go to Start Run type: regedit OK.
  • On the leftside, click to highlight My Computer at the top.
  • Go up to File Export
    • Make sure in that window there is a tick next to "All" under Export Branch.
      Leave the "Save As Type" as "Registration Files".
      Under "Filename" put RegBackup.
  • Choose to save it to C:\
  • Click save and then go to File Exit.


Backup Your Registry with ERUNT
  • Please use the following link and scroll down to ERUNT and download it.
  • For version with the Installer:
    Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer
  • For the zipped version:
    Unzip all the files into a folder of your choice.
Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note: to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERDNT.exe

Thank you.
I have the icon showing now and the advice I sought from Microsoft communities; check taskbar and start menu properties and that the sound is ticked.
