icons missing from notification area on taskbar (bottom ride side of screen) - the volume icon is gone and the arrow to show/hide the icons is gone

The icons in the notification area of the task bar (bottom right side of desk top) aren't all there.  The speaker/volume icon is gone now and the arrow next to the notification area (to show and hide icons) is also gone.  I haven't changed anything on the computer.  I tried rebooting but it didn't help.  Any idea why this would suddenly disappear and how to get it back?
