Upgraded Toshiba laptop from Vista to Win 7 Home Premium 32-bit. Volume icon now missing from taskbar. Volume can be controlled through Control Panel, but that's cumbersome. How to restore icon?

In the list of system icons, volume icon showed "on," but still not present. Clicking on restore default behavior brought it up on the task bar. Thanks for the help.
