What exactly do you mean by gone? You can't get to it via CTRL + ALT + DEL or right-clicking on the taskbar? Does it not show up or do you get an error?

For Vista Business and above:

1) Run gpedit.msc
2) Browse to User Config/Admin Templates/System/Ctrl+Alt+Del Options
3) Set the "Remove Task Manager" option in the right pane to "disabled" or "not Configured"

For other versions of Vista (including Business and above)
1) Browse to the HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System registry key
2) Look for a value called "DisableTaskMgr" and delete it.

If this is on a domain, you may or may not have access to the properties as the option to disable the task manager may be pushed down through the group policies at the domain level.

dunno why it would have changed..

edit:

Personally, I just hit Ctrl-Shift-Esc

But, neither of these would bring it up if the policy is set to prevent taskmanager from running.
