Hi Squirrel.

For Ryans suggestion, right click the Start button and select properties. Select Taskbar tab - then, under "Notification area", "customise". You may not see the clock here, if it has been disabled so:
Right click the very small yellow triangle on the right of the taskbar, adjacent to the notification area. Select properties. This will show you the options for enabling/disabling the notification icons. The clock is included.
