Re: Volume, Network & Power icons are greyed out but Clock is still fine.
It might have something to do with the display options for the notification bar found in the registry editor. Sometimes these files get logged up with past icons from unused and unistalled software and the icons remain, I suggest cleaning the files out and restarting explorer to fix this
1. Select Start, Click Run and type Regedit Press Enter.
5. Press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC to bring up Task manager
6. Under Processes click Explorer and select End Task
7. Select File and New Task
8. Type Explorer.exe and press Enter
When you go into your Taskbar and Start menu properties you should see that at first the icons are still grayed out, after ten minutes or after a restart these options should come back and are then useable
