    I have experimented and discoveree I can make NO CHANGES to any part of
    the Task bar, including locking it. FYI, I have XP Service Pack 2.

    Also, changes to the Desktop, do remain, and going to classic start menu mode
    does not help.

    Create new profile.

    What determines the configuration of the QuickLaunch bar? Where are the
    settings stored? Can these be "locked?"

    This is still r9thlife, btw.

    When I created a new user, and then switched to the new account, the changes
    to the Quicklaunch bar of the original (Owner) account would remain when I
    switched back to it. But when I log off or restart, everything returns to
    the last settings before I created a new account. I can make changes while I
    have Owner active, but they are lost when I log off and back on. Its as if
    there is a "snapshot" of the size and order of the quicklaunch toolbar for
    the Owner account that cannot be changed. If I delete all the icons in the
    Owner Quicklaunch directory, the bar will be blank. But if I copy them back,
    then reboot, I am back where I started.

    It is not losing which icons are there, only their order on the bar and the
    size of the bar. Where are these settings saved?

    If newly created user settings are okay, delete both original account and
    its files after backup and recreate this account.

    Are you logged into a domain? if so there are user profiles involved
    and it may be that you don’t permissions to make permanent changes.
