Icons disappeared from notification tray windows vista

\015 My volume, network and power icons are all of a sudden not showing in the notification area in Windows Vista. I have right clicked on Start and looked at the notification tab and the "select which icons to always show" only allows me to choose clock and the others are greyed out. What has happened and how do I fix it?\015
