Quick Launch in Win-XP

By ted_pas7 ·
I am using Win-XP Home and like to have Quick Launch on the Taskbar. I rt-clk on the taskbar, select QuickLaunch and it appears. Then after I restart Windows QuickLaunch is gone again.

Any ideas?

He's an idea check your problem with Technet or DEJA (Google groups).

I went back to Technet and didn't find anything useful, just how to apply the Quicklaunch to the Taskbar. DEJA didn't yield anything either.

It looks like you have received almost every answer in the book, but I've got one more.
Re-install XP over the current image.
Now, if you don't have an updated XP CD, you will want to create a "Slipstreamed" XP CD.
If you're not familiar with the term, in involves creating a copy of the original CD with the Service Pack updates applied. You may want to do a search for Slipstream on Technet.
I've done it and it works fine without disturbing your curent config.

I haven't tried the fix yet but will this weekend. Your answer has helped me with another project so I want you to have the points! I never would have thought to look up 'slipstream' and it looks like it will be great for working with some server issues.
Thanks alot, Ted
