Date and Time Notification Icon Missing In Properties

Hello!

I have a new Laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. I turned off the time and date from the task bar and now I can't find the option to turn it back on. I've tried countless settings and tried the Microsoft website and it's not helping. Is there a way to enable my time and date notification on my task bar?

Thanks!
