Taskbar Problems
Everything is lost when I reboot...

I have a fairly unique taskbar problem. Every time I reboot, Windows XP Home works like a champ aside from the fact that my taskbar is completely empty.

I always have it set to have the Quick Launch bar along with the Address bar on the top row, then have the actual running apps how on the bottom row.

So, I'll set that all back up, then lock the taskbar. Works fine, until I reboot again.

Because of this, I've gone so far as to repair the installation of XP. Three times now. Once, I ran CCleaner trying to see if that would fix it. It did not, so I reinstalled again. This last time I ran into a snag as described here:


I completed all of that and the final installation worked fine... But the taskbar problem persists.

What recommendations do you guys have? Any ideas on what I could try to help fix this?

Thanks so much!

I was digging around the KB and other sites looking for something similar to the problem you describe, but I'm not coming up with anything.

When you say 'Everything is lost when I reboot', what does that mean? Is it just the position of the Quick Launch toolbar?

There are some Taskbar settings in the registry, and there are associated KB articles about how to tweak these values.
