Default When I open my computer, the 'active window bar' at the top of a window does not install.

Sounds like you are missing the window title bar. This is controlled by
the window manager, most likely kwin or emerald. Sometimes you get that
behavior when you use kwin with compiz, or emerald without it. I have
had the problem running wine apps under compiz.

Does restarting X (ctrl+alt+backspace) help?

Have you checked the window settings from the settings manager?

Have you tried reloading the window manager?
