Hi -
Do you just mean the Icon in Task bar, or no volume control at all ??
Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Entertainment, now see if you have controls there and it is not set to Mute -

Thank Tou -

If you mean the volume icon in the task bar it is a simple matter to put it there.

From your Start menu click Control Panel.

In Control Panel open up Sounds and Audio Devices.

Volume
tab.

Check Place volume icon in the taskbar.

Click Apply.

To keep it always showing:

RIGHT click on the taskbar. Choose Properties. If Hide Inactive icons is marked, click Customize. Find the volume control and set it to Always Show.

What is the exact error message that you are getting regarding your sound.

What do you mean by your computer shuts down this site?
Do you mean that it is blocked somehow?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Bonita, On December 29th you started a topic which was moved to Am I Infected? That topic is here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic435314.html

I have a backdoor trojan horse virus, that has blocked me from getting on the internet or opening my firewall. When I run a virus protector it says, File will remain in its current location on your disk to ensure you are protected, resident shield will not allow you to access files that are infected. So I can't get rid of this virus. So if I reformat, will the trojan be gone.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal


Did you format your computer or take steps to ensure that you computer is no longer infected? If not, you could still be infected. That may or may not have anything to do with the volume control and shutting down this site issues but if you did not format your first priority should be making sure your system is clean.

We could work with you to get those issues cleared up but an infection would still cause other problems.

Since you have an open topic in the Am I Infected forum...to avoid confusion and comflicting suggestions, this topic is closed pending completion of that topic.
