Quicklaunch dissapears

Post by nearls6 » Sat Aug 25, 2007 6:24 am

Recently the quicklaunch toolbar on XP no longer appears when I start up windows. I have tried turning it on  using right clik on the taskbar and selecting toolbar, as well as turning it on through taskbar settings. It does come back on but is gone again the next time i start windows. Also there a 3 user profiles on the computer and this is only happening to mine. Anyone have an idea why it maybe doing this?

There's two possible solutions here: http://tinyurl.com/25hesk

Both require registry changes, so it's a good idea to back it up before making changes:

There's an automatic fix tool available from Kelly's Korner:  http://tinyurl.com/3egdk
(This tool can repair other problems too - read the information on the page.

A long shot, as you have said it only affects one user:

You could try creating a new user profile for yourself and then delete the existing one. I believe I've seen that as a solution elsewhere.

Worth a try.
