Just drag the downloads folder from your user folder back down.

For starters, it's not the taskbar, it's the Dock. Second, dbnoise is on the right track. Click on Finder (the icon all the way to the left of the Dock that looks like a face). A window should pop up, by default it's your Home directory (your name should be highlighted on the left). You'll see a folder called Downloads here. Drag that down next to the Trash icon on the Dock.

ahh , it just dissapeared into thin air, and its not in the finder anymore either. I think this is what happened before I dragged it to the bin by mistake, thing is it isnt in the trash to get it back out even though thats where it went when it dissapeared. any ideas?
