Advanced Volume control Is missing from Taskbar and not working?

A few days ago I had a problem that I found my advanced volume control is missing from Taskbar and then I tried to find the function in control panel>sounds,speech and Audio devices and then clicked in Advanced volume control and then I found a dialog box which is given below. Would you tell me how I can get rid from this problem?

Windows  cannot find 'C:WINDOWSsystem32sndvol32.exe'.Make sure you type the name correctly,
and then try again. To search for a file click the Start button, and then click Search.

Hi!

Your problem regarding 'the advanced volume control is missing from taskbar', is maybe a cause of virus, malicious file, system file corruption, applications erro, and hardware failure. In order to resolve this problem, you may follow the following procedure to isolate the error.
Update Antivirus and scan your computer

1. Install Malwarebytes to scan for virus and Malware
2. Check device manager, to check your hardware device

After scanning your computer for potential threats from viruses, please check your audio driver by accessing device manager. If you see an exclamation icon, you must install your audio driver again. Please see the procedures (Device Manager).

1. Right click My Computer and select Properties
2. Click Device Manager and select Audio
3. Right click Audio and update driver
