Quick launch disappears after restarting

By stghibli ·
Each time I restart, my quick lauch disappears from my taskbar even after I tried checking 'quick launch' in the toolbar and from checking it off under the start menu. I'm not sure why it won't stay. I have read that someone else had the same problem (djs27), but I do not seem to have the same situation. Furthermore, I doubt this is the cause of TweakUI since I've checked for the 'classicshell' key, and it isn't there. Are there any other suggestions? Much appreciated.

Instead of wsaupdater.exe, the data should contain userinit.exe,. Using the example above, the data would be


Do not forget to add the comma at the end.

Close the Registry Editor and reboot your computer. Problem solved.
