Default reinstall volume control

my volume control no longer displays on my taskbar. I
tried the Start-Control Panel-Sounds & Devices-Show
Volume Control. Error message "Win cannot display the
volume control because the Volume Control program has not
been installed. To install use Add/Remove Programs in the
Control Panel." BUT.... what part of the setup needs to
be installed? I think I shut off the program when I was
removing Win components that I wasn't using, and have no
idea which to reinstall.

Default reinstall volume control

Hi,

To resolve this issue, extract a new copy of Sndvol32.exe from the Windows
XP CD to the system_root \System32 folder on your computer's hard disk. To
do this, follow these steps:

Start/Run/CMD. In the command prompt window type:

X: (where X is your CD Drive letter)
CD \I386

Then use the expand command:
expand -r sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32

Note: This assumes XP is installed on C: and that its installed in the
Windows folder. If not, you'll need to adjust the command accordingly.
Additionally, this must be an installable version of XP, not a "recovery
CD".

Volume Control Icon Disappears from the Notification Area:

Save Settings on Exit (Line 54)

To use the Regedit: Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it
and answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by
right clicking on the file and selecting Edit.

That fixed it up just fine! Thank You!

Go to Control Panel - Add/Remoze Programs - add/Remove

Windows Components.
Make sure that the "Accessories and Utilities" component

has a check mark next to it and is installed.

I believe that volume control is a part of this.

Hope that helps.
