    My Quicklaunch toolbar keeps disappearing. XP SP3, I tried this fix but
    it didn't work:

    http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=7898

    Right click on START button, click properties, click TASKBAR, UNCHECK
    "Show Quick Launch"

    START> RUN> IE4UINIT.EXE (hit [ENTER])

    Right click START button, click properties, click TASKBAR, CHECK "Show
    Quick Launch"

    Hi Donald,

    I tried both approaches:

    - IE4UINIT.EXE, REGSVR32 /i SHELL32.DLL, REGSVR32 /i BROWSEUI.DLL

    - manually checking the registry for the correct entries.

    Neither one worked. I'm sorry I wasn't clearer in the original message,
    each time I boot the quicklaunch taskbar is not visible, but right
    clicking on the task bar and checking it always makes it visible, and
    all of the icons I've added in the past are always there.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    You might try the Rregistry Tweak at the link that was posted by Elmo.

    If no joy, then check your third party secruity application(s) to see if
    they have a setting that is blocking changes to your Registry.

    Good luck,
