As tough as this would be to diagnose for me without seeing your screen, I have two thoughts. Is it possible that the volume control window is off screen somewhere, that the last time it was opened it was closed in a spot where you're jut not seeing it and now it opens there every time? Also, have you had dual monitors on the PC you're working on, do you now? That would put the icon off screen also I guess, which is my only thought at the moment on this?
I would never ask a person to do something that I wouldn't do myself.
