Windows 7: Icons for volume and internet keep disappearing from ta

Windows 7
Icons for volume and internet keep disappearing from ta

Since installing Win 7 I have not been able to successfully reinstate the icons for the above on the task bar.

I have managed to get them to reappear through a few suggested remedies, but they disappear again when I reboot.

I have tried updating my drivers but it hasn't helped.

When I go to Customise Notification Items, volume and network are selected to show. However, when I look at "Turn system icons on/off" only the clock is switched on, whilst all the others are switched off and greyed out.

Anybody any ideas?
