Windows volume icon disappeared and no longer accessible
Windows volume icon has disappeared from the taskbar (rebooted) and is no longer accessible even when I went to --> 'System Icons' -- ''Turn System Icons on or off'' it is greyed out. I am assuming some sound.media software has done this. Does anyone have any clues?
Media/Sound Software I have are:
DFX Audio Enhancer, AC3 Filter
VLC Media Player, Media Monkey, Gom player, Windows media Player (almost never use it)
Windows Live ID (almost never use it)
Audacity (almost never use it)
Foobar (almost never use it)
and my browsers have adobe and apple stuff
