Is it disappeared from the taskbar ? Then you may get it back.
Click start menu-->Computer. A explorer window will appear.
In the explorer window, click on Libraries ( in the left side pane). The explorer icon is now in your taskbar.
Right click on the taskbar icon --> Pin this program to taskbar. KIDDING ?

But if it appears and vanishes .... I dont know what to do.
