Maya help: extrude tool manipulator has disappeared

In the middle of a project, my Extrude tool manipulators have suddenly disappeared. I'm referring to the handles that let you move and scale the newly extruded part.  The extrustion still happens but I have to use the normal Move and Scale tools to make any changes and its just not as effective.

Does anybody know how to get it back?

Thanks.

Have you accidentally turned off construction history? Along the top bar there will be a scroll icon, make sure it doesnt have an 'x' in it.

Maya can be temperamental at times, if everything fails to get it back you can reset everything by renaming your maya preferences file

C:/Users/<Username>/MyDocuments/maya <- rename it to *maya or _maya, when you start up maya again it will have reset everything, if that doesnt work and you want your preferences back, then just go back into that folder, delete the new 'maya' folder it created and rename your old *maya or _maya file back to maya.
