I just tried it and it worked for me I know that doesn't help you any.
You could try option two of this tutorial and see if it helps SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
The only other thing I can think of would be Repair Install

One more thing you could try before the repair install is to create a new user account and see if it still happens.

There are 2 way you might wanna give it a try

Thru the Local Group Policy Editor

To access Local Group Policy Editor click on start and run enter gpedit.msc
On the left side navigate to User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Start Menu and Taskbar.
Now on the right side scroll down to “Remove Clock from the system notification area” and enable that setting.
Log off & on for it take effect.

Manual Registry Editor

To access the Registry Editor click on start and run enter regedit
Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
If the folder Explorer is not there create it, right click on the folder to Explorer
Click on explorer folder and on the right pane create a new DWORD and name it HideClock... enter a value data of 1 in Hexadecimal.
Log off & on for it take effect.

Take note

The above 2 method will permanently turn off the clock in the taskbar.
The clock option in the customize notification area will be grey out you will not be able to turn on or off.

If you wana bring the option back just delete the HideClock from the registry.

Ok that it.... hope the clock wouldn't turn on again in your next reboot.
