I've noticed on a new installation of XP Professional that the Quick
Launch bar disappears every time I reboot, and I have to manually turn
it back on in the taskbar properties. Any idea what is causing this?

This could be due to spyware. Open Registry Editor and navigate to:
HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Win¬dowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

In the right-pane, change the value of Userinit to
Type the above value exactly as given (change the drive-letter/path if
different in your system), including the comma - exclude the quotes. Close
Registry Editor and restart Windows. The Quick Launch settings should be
retained now.
