Hi Stevieb,
can you move your screen up and see the task bar then? if so right click on task bar and select lock task bar

It will still be there. Hover your mouse right at the bottom of the screen until it changes to a double headed arrow and then click and drag it back up the screen.

and also check that the kids have not moved it to the top or side of the screen, try what Jeffers22 says on the top, bottom and sides.

hi all many thanks for your responses but now ive discovered that 2 of the 4 log on screens also have no icons at all and the other 2 dont want to do anything,also tried all your suggestions but still unable to get taskbar back,do you think a reformat may have to be the answer ?

Try F11, which toggles between Full Screen and Normal Screen.
