    ok , right click the start bar , goto where you make that button appear again , but click customize then select the programs that you want to be hiden or shown when they are inactive
    that should solve the problem

    Try this.

    go start > log off > log off
    then log back on
    or
    R-click the taskbar & select Task Manager
    under Processes tab select Explorer.exe & End Task
    under Applications tab select New Task
    type in explorer and click ok
