Santa Cruz/Turtle Beach volume control in systray

I keep two items in my systray -- NIS and Santa Cruz/Turtle Beach volume control. Not sure if it has anything to do with recent install of WMP 11, but no volume control is showing up on systray at first boot. In Properties it lists as past, not current item, and is still configured as "always show". I play with the volume options going back to "always hide" and then to "always show", but only rebooting brings it back. Before I shut down the computer in the wee small hours, I usually have WMP playing. The disappearance of Santa Cruz volume control from systray used to happen occasionally. but since WMP ver 11 it happens often at first boot.

I can get a volume control icon back to the systray using Sounds and Audio Devices in Control Panel, but it is not the same one as before, and a right click does not open up the same Santa Cruz/Turtle Beach control panel as before.

It is annoying and suggestions will be appreciated. My thanks.

Thank you, Paul.....but I went back to WMP 10....did not care for ver 11 on my system. I have my preferred volume control back in system tray.

HOWEVER.....I now cannot get any sound from WMP 10. There is sound on my system and RealPlayer and MusicMatch have sound.

Any suggestions.....anyone????? Will I ever learn to leave well enought alone!? Probably not Happy
