Bluetooth has disappeared!

I used to have a little blue icon in the system tray which I could use to switch on my wireless adaptor(?) and bluetooth. This icon has disappered and with it my means of switching on bluetooth.

I have looked in the Device manager-> Network Adaptors and see only these two items:

Attansic Ethernet
Intel(R) Pro Wireless

Nothing bluetooth related at all.

I could really do with some help with this.

Oh yes, the wireless connection is continuing to work.

Thanks, Fruit Bat.

I had done what you had suggested but I didn't realise that I needed to restart the machine to make the changes take effect.
