Sure hope you can help me out with this, it’s driving me nuts. I have lost two icons on my taskbar. The “Volume control” and the “Safe to remove” that pops on when I plug in a USB flash drive.
Here’s the strange part. If I go to my Control Panel, select the Sounds and Audio Devices and select the Place volume icon in taskbar, both the “Volume” icon and the “Safe to Remove” will appear and work fine until the next reboot. After a reboot, the same thing happens again.
I have tried right clicking the taskbar and selecting properties, Hide inactive icons, Customize, Volume, always show. That didn’t help. I also replaced the SNDVOL32.exe in the system32 folder. Nothing has helped. On startup or reboot I loose both icons.
Thank you for any input you can provide with this problem.
