Google Search removed from Taskmanager in lolipop (xperia z1 both build 242 and 270)

Hello! I am using lollipop on my z1 and I really like it. The only thing I really dislike is the Google search widget removed suddenly from the bottom of the taskmanager. I have this problem in both build 242 and 270. I also clear data and cashe,update google and also remove. but this doesnt came back again.

You could boot on safe mode and check again, just to be sure, you have NOT uninstalled nor disabled any app at all?

Try Clearing the manager Xperia home app data.

How to clear data on apps.
From your Home screen

1. Tap the Application screen icon.
2. Find and tap Settings > Apps.
3. Swipe to the All tab.
4. Find and tap on the manager Xperia home app.
5. Tap Force stop > Clear data.
6. Restart the phone

Have you disable any app or service? 

 

settings > apps > all > scroll to the bottom
