Windows 7 Top Ribbon thing

Hi I'm new to Windows 7 and here. Some way, I think I deleted or disabled the ribbon thing at the startup so now it won't pop up anymore. I had my recycle bin, mozilla, everything on that ribbon and now it's gone. How do I get it back on my desktop?

Not sure what you mean by ribbon, but if you changed the OS, in any way a system restore will work. Maybe you mean a dock?

I'm not sure what it's called but when you startup, this thing with all your applications pops up. I tried the system restore but it was from earlier today and it didn't work.

Just checked your specs, you have a Dell. It is the Dell dock. This is what you did.
