    I think in general these get grayed out if Windows doesn't recognize the devices associated with those icons. If you open Device manager do you see problems for you Sound or Network devices? Do those systems work? In other words, do have network access and are you hearing normal system sounds?

    Hi,
    If you like, try Group Policy Editor, go to run and type gpedit.msc. I would suggest you to backup your system and follow this tutorial.

    Hi brummyfan,

    Thank you for your knowledge, but my system doesn't seem to like 'gpedit.msc'.

    Think it's prob best to put this all in the too hard basket.

    Really appreciate everyone's time & effort.

    Cheers

    I am sorry that I fail to notice that you have Win 10 and unfortunately group policy editor enabled in Pro and upwards
