I just happened when I left the computer a few minutes. When I came back I have nothing furthest down on my screen, just black. The internet tabs are displayed as normal though on top the the page.

I use Google Chrome on Windows 7 Home Premium.

What should I do to get the bottom row back again?

It is the whole task bar and not only the toolbar: start menu, clock, icons and everything disappeared.

I got it solved now:

"Hit Alt-CTRL_DELETE to bring up Task Manager, check under Processes to see if any "explorer.exe" files are running, if they are stop them all, then go to the Applications Tab and run New Task, type in explorer.exe and click ok, the task bar should re-appear, it worked in my Windows 7 Ultimate"

It would seem something caused the explorer to malfunction, thus stop responding and no longer working. An easier way to see if explorer is running typing Windows button + [R]. The "Run"-window should show up. Type in "Explorer.exe" and see if anything happens.

However, it's good that you were able to solve your problem. Good work on finding the cause.

best run sfc or a repair, since the os looks to have been corrupted somehow - and of course - reboot.
