You can simply right click on the taskbar, choose properties. In the properties window choose "Start Menu" Tab. Then choose customize.

In the new window choose "Advanced" Tab, then check the box beside "Highlight newly installed programs".

This should solve your problem.

The registry method for this setting is to set DWORD value of Start_NotifyNewApps=1 in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced registry key.
You might want to double check that that is actually what your registry is showing. If not, make the change and reboot.
