This question already has an answer here:

I have installed the latest version of QGIS wien 2.8. Windows 8.1 downloaded the stand alone version from official QGIS website.

I had to uninstall the latest one I had because Openlayers plugin was downloaded and installed but one day it stopped appearing in my toolbar.

So I uninstalled and removed everything and installed again, but the problem remains, just as with the previous one.

Can anybody help me with this issue?
