    Hello,

     

    1. Right click on the Task bar
    2. Select Task manager and Processes tab
    3. Search explorer.exe
    4. Right click on it and select Terminate the process.
    5. The task bar disappears so don't leave the Task manager
    6. Select Applications tab, click on [New task], type explorer.exe and click on [OK]
    7. It launches the task bar and all icons appear.

    Note:

    I own Windows XP Pro but in french version so I translate the different words. May be this won't be exactly the same terms.
