Sometimes the file msacm32.drv double itself and may be the reason your taskbar icon always dissapears.

Originally this file should be in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 only
but if it is in folder C:\WINDOWS also you will have to rename that file to something like msacm32xxx.drv

After go back to sound manager and redo the option to show your speaker icon and hopefully it will now work.
