    I powered down computer for 3 hrs. Powered back up and it ran checkdisk. Found some errors and corrected.... now when finishes booting up... there is NO QuickLaunch toolbar and when I try to "open" the QuickLaunch I get a little window that says

    "unable to create toolbar"

    period... thats all it says...

    anyone have any ideas.... I have already checkd Registry "the userinit" key... It has correct info....

    Thanx
    Snake...

    Your Quick Launch folder should be here C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    If it's not there create a new one.

    What we are going to need is all of the errors that occurred please reboot and start writing. Please post them back here.

    So what happens now when you right-click on the taskbar > properties and check the box 'Show Quick Launch'? You should be able to drag some shortcuts there. By 'Windows Quick Launch toolbar' I assume you mean the Quick Launch area of the taskbar to the right of the start button.
