Sounds like something is up with your systray.exe or explorer.exe Does rebooting the laptop bring them back?
If not, try this:
Right Click on the time/clock on the bottom right > Customize notification icons > make changes there
You can also open the task manager
Go to processes
End that process
Then click on File --> new task --> explorer.exe
That will basically stop and restart the explorer.exe which runs the task bar.
