    What version of windows are you running?

      @ mark running windows xp

        Cheeky, try what fletcha mentions below. Also, if you reboot the PC does the taskbar & icons come back?

    Try to hit Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open your Task manager. Once Task Manager is open go to File > Run and type “explorer” If that doesn’t work try “explorer.exe”. That should bring all of your icons/Task Menu back unless something has become corrupt.
