    Lost my Quick Launch toolbar

    Somehow I've managed to loose my Quick Launch toolbar.
    I've tried right clicking the Taskbar & selecting - Toolbars - Quick Launch,
    but it doesn't do anything. I've also right clicked the Taskbar, selected
    Properties & selected Show Quick Launch from the Taskbar & Start Menu
    Properties but again nothing happens (the Taskbar is unlocked).
    I've followed some of the other answers on the Community & still can't find
    a solution. The Quick Launch folder (with the icons for Show Desktop & Switch
    Between Windows) is where it should be on the C Drive -
    C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
    I recently had to do a Reset with Internet Explorer 7 - could that have done
    something as it dissapeared around the same time ?
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Have you tried System Restore to a time before the problem started?

    Thanks Bob,

    Tried the System Restore 5 times using different restore points back as far
    as I have them & when the computer re-boots I get:-

    "System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files
    & settings were not changed.
    Details
    An unspecified error occurred during system restore"

    So I can't restore to an earlier point.
    Should I shoot it now?
    Any help would be welcome

    I've had that happen with System Restore too, some software was interfering
    with System Restore. You still have two options which might work. You can
    try running System Restore in safe mode and you can also try running System
    Restore from a command prompt (safe mode boot option).

    Perhaps you accidentally made it too small to see?

    Start your PC in Safe Mode and run System Restore from there.

    Thanks everyone for your help.
    I managed to get System Restore to work ok, it was Norton 360 that was
    stopping it. If you open Norton 360, select Tasks & Setting at the top
    right, select Change Advance Settings then on the screen that opens un-tick
    Norton 360 Protection. Then System Restore works ! Remember to switch it back
    on afterwards.
    So, having got System Restore to work it rolled it back to a point where my
    Quick Launch toolbar was back in the world of the living !!
    Still can't hide the Taskbar by draging it to the bottom of the screen, but
    hey, you can't have everything !!
    Many thanks again to all who offered help.

    To avoid future problems get rid of Norton ASAP!
    Replace with AVG or Avast...both are free.
