    My network activity icon suddenly vanished from the notification area. So
    did the Volume Control. R-Clicking on the Taskbar and going to
    properties/notification area shows check boxes for both, but both are grayed
    out. No changes have been made to the system. At reboot, the 2 items were
    just gone.

    Any ideas?

    Before you do a system restore just check the status on the taskbar
    properties there are options on the notification icons tab to not
    display these items :)
