    2. Click on Save, and save the .bat file to the desktop.

    3. Double click on the .bat file to run it, click on Run (if prompted by UAC), and follow the onscreen instructions in the command prompt.

    4. This is what you will see if the registry keys IconStreams and PastIconsStream have already been deleted.

    6. After the computer restarts, the registry keys IconStreams and PastIconsStream will automatically be recreated the next time you make any change to the notification area icons in Windows 7 and Vista.

1. Back up the Registry by creating a restore point.
2. Go to Start > Run (or Windows-key + R), type in regedit and hit OK.
3. Navigate to the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cla sses\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Wi ndows\CurrentVersion \TrayNotify.
4. Delete the values IconStreams and PastIconsStream.
5. Open up the Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc), go to the Processes tab, select explorer.exe and click End Process.
6. Open the Applications tab and click New Task at the bottom-right of the window.
7. In the message box that pops up type in explorer.exe and hit OK.
8. Explorer.exe will reload, and the missing icons should now be back in the system-tray where they belong.
9. Then if the volume bar isnt there, go to taskbar properties (where the volume was gray) and simply tick the box.

this should work, did for me!

Or the simple way...

Regedit, create new entries:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"HideSCAVolume"=dword:00000000
"HideSCAPower"=dword:00000000
"HideSCANetwork"=dword:00000000
"HideSCAHealth"=dword:00000000
