My quick launch bar disappears everytime I restart. I
then have to right-click on the toolbar and check quick
launch and it reappears until I restart again. I've tried
creating a new account but still have the same problem.
Any help on how to retain my settings?

Check the computer for viruses and other malware.

Thanks, but I guess I should have mentioned that I ran
Norton and Adaware with the latest updates beforehand and
came up with nothing. Are there any other suggestions?

Re-scan your system from the Safe Mode to make sure that it is clean.
Check your startup settings to find out if something here is causing
this. Applications that start with Windows can be found here:
- the WIN.INI, section [windows], entries "run=" and "load="
- the Registry keys
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices
- the folders
C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ALL USERS\START MENU\PROGRAMS\STARTUP
C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\{username}\START MENU\PROGRAMS\STARTUP

XP" (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=310560) and "How to Perform a
