Check in the taskbar, near the clock. You probably just have to open it's icon from there.

Open up the task manager and kill the process and try restarting it.  A virus could be the real annoyance.  I know there was a malwarebytes virus out there that looked exactly like malwarebytes but that was a few years ago.  Otherwise try uninstalling and reinstalling malwarebytes.  That looks like an old version and with the new one they changed their logo and everything.
