I'm having the same issue under x86. The quick launch bar would disappear on reboot. However, if you terminate explorer.exe and then relaunch it, it appears again.

As for the other questions, you should post them in the appropriate General Discussion and Network & Internet forums for them so this tutorial can stay on topic, and so you can get more replies to them.
That is absolutely idiotic. I have 40-50 QL items. That WILL NOT FIT on the task bar as pinned items.

I have no trouble with QL disappearing. When I installed W7 the first time, I noticed immediately that QL was missing. The VERY FIRST THING I did on W7 was Google QL and find a way to get it back.

However, I still have a serious problem. When I arrange the QL buttons as I want them, I lose the order whenever I reboot. How do I get them to stay put?

This is incredibly annoying. I use pinning for the 3-4 apps that I always run. It's convenient to always have them in the same place. The 2 states of the buttons are confusing, but I'll probably get used to that.

You have provided no substitute for the QL bar. Removing it was just dumb.

Hello RJ, and welcome to Seven Forums.

As a workaround, you can pin a folder to the taskbar and place your shortcuts in it instead.

IMO the QL bar is for 6 or so items, why not use the start menu for the rest of the programs. If you organize the programs it works pretty well. That is what it was designed to do.
I use the QL for 6 or so most often used programs (daily) everything else is desktop or start menu.
I cant imagine you use 40+ items daily??

To each his own I guess :P

Hello Mlad,

Double check to see if step 9 or 10 in OPTION ONE may be able to help you with this.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Edit: I am unable to test 64bit at this time.
Turning off UAC didn't help. It is still disappearing. The User Account Control Setting is already set to the lowest...

If you read earlier post it is discussed but still it is NOT solved yet.

Have you tried checking the "Use small icons" box in Properties? Changing the icons that way makes them the same size as the old QL icons on my system.

Disable the language bar.
Control Panel / Region and Language tab keyboards and language
Or right-click on US, DE or what else.
