Hi,

I believe my sndvol32.exe file is corrupted, because the volume icon has disappeared from the task bar, despite that this file is still located in the system32\dllcache folder. Could anyone help me?

My OS is XP SP3

Have you tried checking your settings via the control panel? Open up the control panel...click on the icon for "sounds, blah,,,blah..."...Make sure that the box is checked to show volume icon in task bar...It may be that easy....
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

I already tried that. Got a message instructing me to go to Control Panel, open Add/Remove Windows Programs, etc. It was unsuccessful because the system can't find sndvol32.exe, although this file is present in the system

You may be able to use SFC to fix this problem...Instructions for usage are here:
