I remember for xp, there used to be a tool called Taskbar Repair Tool Plus which solved this problem. Dont know whether its around now or if it works in Win7.
I would suggest a thorough malware scan first.

Have you tried re-enabling the Start Menu? It may be that you have also disabled the function that informs the taskbar that a program has been minimized.

There are always negative side-effects when disabling "core" system options that are best left alone...

minimizing windows
Since changing to Windows 7, I find that if I minimise any window, instead of appearing in the taskbar as an icon-it vanishes completely . Can anyone give me a fix on this. Thank you.
