This should get your icon back.
Click on Control Panel then Sounds and audio devices.When you open that last one it should show an option to "place an icon in the task bar"
Hope this helps.

"windows cannot display the volume controll on the task bar because the volume controll programme has not been installed. to install it , use add/remove programs in the controll pannel"

Start>Control Panel>Add and Remove then in the left hand column click on Add/Remove Windows Components, you might need your Original XP disc.

This is sometimes the result of a corrupt Windows file. Try running click here in its default form, this may sort it.
