Missing Taskbar Icon

Hey chaps (and chapesses) - my Acer Aspire running Win 7 has stopped showing the audio icon on the Taskbar. Some websites have very annoying music or 'announcements' so I like to switch the sound off - now I can't without going via Control Panel. I have looked in Control panel and found System Icons - and the Sound label is shown as OFF. But the little arrow next to it to change the state is greyed out so I can't turn it back on. I tried the 'show all icons' under Notification Area Icons but the audio still doesn't show. Any ideas?
