try pressing CTRL + ESC and see if it pops back

If CTRL+ESC didn't work press CTRL+ALT+DEL to fire up the task manager.
On the File menu, select New Task (Run).
Type in "explorer" and press OK.
That should restart explorer and re-display your taskbar.

The icons on the desktop respond normally to the mouse click finally if I try to width the task bar I can do but I am unable to do the reverse.
Hope this info help to help me, no success when I press CTRL ESC or CTRL ALT DEL.
