Floating volume control

Hey all,

Since all the gadgets were phased out; i am having a real hard time finding some sort of floating desktop volume controller. You would think something this simple would be easy to find..but I can't find anything that suits what I want.

Windows 7 Pro. 64/SP-1

Right click on a empty spot on the Taskbar and select Properties. Then go to customize. In that group of selection should be a little picture of a speaker. In the drop down box select
Show icon and notification. Reboot and it should show a little speaker on the right side of the Taskbar. Tick on the speaker and you should be able to adjust the volume.
