Quick Launch in XP disappears on restart

By djs27 ·
My quick launch bar in win xp disappears everytime I boot/restart. Each time I boot I have to manually right click on the taskbar/toolbars/ and recheck quick launch. Sounds like a registry setting but I'm not sure where to look. Any ideas?
Thanks

Export the following key (in case you don't like the result) [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StuckRects]
Delete the key and reboot. The taskbar should revert to the original settings. You may have to go about personalising all over again though.

Better still! Right-click the start button and choose properties. On the taskbar tab there is a "Show Quick Launch" entry, make sure this is ticked.

Tried StuckRects2 removal--no change, have tried "show Quick Launch in Taskbar properties before. On restart/boot the "Show Quick Launch" checkbox clears.
