The default MathKernel process with name "Local"  is launched (starting from 
the version 6) with the '-noicon' command-line option which hides it from 
the taskbar under Windows.  It is possible to create auto-launching kernel 
without this option (say "Local+") by using the "Kernel Configuration 
dialog" and removing the '-noicon' part in the "Arguments to MLOpen" field 
under "Advanced options" (one should also set "Automatically launch on fromt 
end startup"). After this we can set "Local+" as the default kernel globally 
in the "Evaluation :: Default kernel" menu and the kernel will show up as a 
separate entry in the taskbar by default.

HTH,
Alexey
