Our task bar will only appear if we open  "Task Manger". I have made no changes. Experienced a power outage, but battery back up keep system on.

open the task manager to make your task bar appear.  Right click on an empty space on the task bar, choose properties.  Make sure 'Auto-hide the task bar' is not selected.

Try running System File Checker to fix damaged operating system files.

Run SFC /SCANNOW and allow to complete. Restart, make sure the task bar settings are correct and test again.

You didn't accidentally resize it did you?  Try hitting CTRL+ESC and see if it appears.  If it does, you likely resized it so small it does not appear to be visible.  To fix this, you can hit CTRL+ESC, grab the task bar, resize it, then lock it.  Sorry if this appears to be overly obvious, but normally there's only so many things that will make the taskbar disappear.  You mentioned that you ran a new explorer task from task manager... other than that, is there antivirus/anti-malware software on the machine?  You may want to update your definitions and run a full scan... some malware will mess with the Windows shell in unpredictable ways.
