Since you have Quickmix, it seems to me you're well on your way to a 
solution.  For those not familiar with it, and there is a Main Menu program 
about it, Quickmix is a free program that lets you save different volume 
control configurations and easily recall them by activating this or that 
.qmx file.

I've seen several JAWS users have this kind of problem if they share their 

I assume you have saved your desired volume control settings in 
Quickmix.  Why not simply make a shortcut to that file that you put on the 
desktop and either name the shortcut with a character unique to your 
desktop icons, or assign a hotkey to it?  Let's say you name the desktop 
icon xnormal volume.  Now, if you boot your system and have no speech 
because the volume has been muted, simply hit windows key+m followed by x 
and your volume is back to normal.

Write back of you need clarification.
