About two years ago I talked about a very common problem in Windows Vista where the network, volume, and power icons in the system tray disappear. In that post, I provide a solution which involves editing the registry. Several people posted comments that provide slightly more automated ways to make the registry changes through a batch/command file and through a registry file.

Jump ahead to today and Microsoft has a Fix it solution for this problem.

Only one of the two computers with windows vista had the trouble, but I got no results by Fixit. The icons remains grayed and there are no chances to get it once again. What can I do?
