Missing Power Volume Network icons from Taskbar in Vista

Sometimes, Windows Vista loses the icons that are normally displayed in the taskbar area. In order to get them back you would normally do the following...
1. Right hand mouse click on the Windows Start Button
2. Select PROPERTIES
3. Select the NOTIFICATION AREA tab
4. Check the appropriate icon check boxes
