I prefer to use a vertical Taskbar in Windows XP. However, everytime I log
out and log back in, the width changes and I have to reset it. How can I get
the width to stick when using the vertical taskbar?

Have you right-clicked it and checked "Lock the taskbar"?

Yes, then the next time I log in it is no longer the correct width and I
have unlock it on order to fix it...

I had this perplexing problem a year or so ago and at that time was running
Office XP Pro. I finally hit on the solution by closing the speech utility
in the taskbar. I have not had the problem with Office 2003.

I have this problem on 4 machines that I use.
Two of them use Office 2000, one has Office XP & 2003. One is Office 2003
only. I'm not aware of a speech utility being in use in any of them. I do
have the language bar on all 4 machines, if that might be a cause.
Additionally, I use the Quick Launch with small icons.

I believe that the Language Bar does it.
