  • If you created a new task (explorer), the Taskbar should have reappeared. Have you tried restarting the computer?

    If you have done something more than just ending explorer, try running a system restore to a date before this happened. You may have to boot to Safe Mode to do it (start tapping F8 when you switch on).

    Have you rebooted? If not, you should.

  • If the issue persists after restarting the computer, try killing the process and then re-add it again.

     

    If the issue still exists, go into Safe Mode (Restart computer, press the F8 key when the boot menu pops up, select [Safe Mode], and boot up) and check if the issue still occurs.

     

    Also, run System Restore to see if the issue can be resolved after restoring the system to the previous status.
