That's the one. I know because I correctly spelled it in my first grade school spelling bee. All of the other kids failed miserably.

So, I should go to the local elementary and find a kid to isolate why the volume icon is connected to UAC? brb.



OK, I 'm back. Those kids - the best I could do was get bids. $75!?! Kids today...

If you enable UAC, reboot, then install your audio hardware devices (and software if needed) it might make the icon start working again correctly.

I think that is a good idea. A kid from my niece's 3rd grade class is coming over tomorrow to do that. I got a good deal - $35 and a bag of Skittles.

Every movie I suggested was answered, "Seen it".

But seriously, I will do the reload. And then, try to re-create the error. There is at least one report on SF where the OP states the red X with working sound.

But, check this out - my systray volume icon now presents the red X and sounds are playing properly.

The only Antman executed change was UAC enable.
I get that occasionally after I start my computer. If I push either the volume up or down or mute keys on my keyboard, it goes back to normal!
