I have the same issue on many different varieties on computers.  This needs to be fixed how about it? I have the issue on a asus sabertooth systemboard, on hp desktops and laptops, and on dell.  SOMETHING IS BROKEN HERE CAN WE PLEASE FIX THIS? I would bet you not hearing a lot about this because its a bitch to search for this criteria.

Niki,  appreciate the comment but it has no affect.

There Must be a registry fix to turn this thing off.  Can someone from Microsoft please enlighten me.  Its difficult to do work with this on top of everything you open...

I have had the same issues. I believe the volume bar is a conflict between hardware sound controls and windows 8 audio drivers. Previously I found the only way to disable the bar was to disable all sound. There was no program or service specific to the bar, disabling all sounds service gets rid of it, but who wants a mute computer? The best solution I have come up with so far is to update sound drivers. For me I went to the Lenovo website because I have a Lenovo 540b all in one touch screen, and I downloaded Realtek high definition audio drivers for windows 8 64 bit. After install I had sound and voila, the bar disappeared. It did come back again a few days later after testing the touch controls for sound. I reinstalled the driver and will simply stay away from any built in sound control, and control the volume through desktop controls. I have spent countless hours with this problem, and I know there is very little information available on the web. Hopefully it will be brought to Microsoft's attention soon. I hope this helps all of you. I know how frustrating this is because it also completely messed up all touch function. If I come across a better fix I will post. But for now I recommend going to your pc manufacturer's website and downloading the appropriate audio driver updates. A refresh or clean windows install will not help. I tried both. I also tried disabling all services not necessary with a selective startup through msconfig as previously mentioned. None were successful. It is definitely a hardware and windows driver incompatibility.

I've got the same issue in Windows 8.1 with update one and with the August 2014 update. The volume use to go to "0" and stick on the screen and now it goes to 100% and sticks. At the same time I cannot get in to the Start screen or even "Right Click" the Start button. I never tried to unplug my Microsoft Gaming Keyboard to see if it will resolve the problem, but I'm sure it will work. Anyway, I reset the USB port or I press Alt+F4 and then chose reboot. Microsoft please fix this very annoying problem.

I had exactly the same problem. As soon as I tried to adjust the volume, the would appear on the screen and not go away. Also, the volume was stuck at 100%. Plus, my Window icon did nothing after trying to adjust the volume. I have a Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard. If I unplug the wireless dongle and plug it back in all works as it should. The problem started after my last Windows update. This appears to be the result of more "good" work out of Redmond, WA,

I want to thank this thread for pointing me in the direction of Logitech accessories.

I THINK I MIGHT OF FOUND THE PROBLEM! My laptop has a SECCOND button on the side for volume, I forgot about this button and when I pressed volume up and then down everything went back to normal!

Finally figured out where this comes from. It is a fragment of wmplayer.exe player console. This is the whole image, which now periodically comes up. OK, Microsoft... are you gonna' fix it?
