"the taskbar on the bottom of my monitor does not show up, but it does when the computer is turned off. "

How does the Taskbar show up if your computer is turned off?

I assume you mean that it shows during the process of turning off.

Right click Start button then go to > Properties > Taskbar tab.
Make sure there is NOT a tick in "Auto-hide the taskbar".

Please come back and let us know how you got on.
