Microsoft Fix it Solution for Disappearing System Tray Icons on Windows Vista

About two years ago I talked about a very common problem in Windows Vista where the network, volume, and power icons in the system tray disappear. In that post, I provide a solution which involves editing the registry. Several people posted comments that provide slightly more automated ways to make the registry changes through a batch/command file and through a registry file.

Jump ahead to today and Microsoft has a Fix it solution for this problem.
