Ok guys - took me a little while to figure this out, people were solving this problem in the windows operating system.
I am fixing an Asipre One - Model : ZG5 - Operating System : Linux
From what I have researched the problem is creating from a system crash, when the system reloads the panel(taskbar) resets back to default.
### Open a terminal session(Press Alt + F2)
### In the terminal type xfce4-panel -a
In this screen you get the option to add functions to the panel.
Add all the nessacary ones, (some defaults that I remember are)Clock,Tasklist,Volume etc.
Each Time you add a new function to the panel you may have to type (xfce4-panel -a) again in the terminal to load the list.
### Once you have added all the functions type xfce4-panel -c
This displays the panel customization which if you play around with you can get it back to the bottom of the screen(The same as windows).
### Once you have it in position type xfce4-panel -s
This Saves your configuration
All done - Restart the netbook and all should be fine.
If you need help with additional options using the xfce4-panel you can always type xfce4-panel --help, this will displays the xfce4-panel options
I hope this helps anyone with similar problems, feedback is always welcome
