Is the Bluetooth icon not in your systray (bottom right side by the clock) anymore?  If it is, you should be able to right-click on that icon and select "Turn Adapter On" or something similar.  Another way to access your Bluetooth adapter is by going into your Network Connections (if you have Windows XP) or the Network and Sharing Center if you have Vista or Windows 7.

If the icon isn't showing in the systray by the clock, you can also try going to the following:

Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center
Click "Change adapter settings" in the left panel
Find your Bluetooth adapter listed there, right-click on it, and make sure it's enabled.

If it shows that it's Enabled, you can try to riight-click on it again and choose Properties.
There should be a Bluetooth tab on top, click on it.
Click on the "Bluetooth Settings" link in the bottom part of the window.
In the Bluetooth Settings window, click the Options tab, and make sure the box for "Turn off the Bluetooth adapter" is not checked.
