Windows 7: What Would Cause Quicklaunch To Disappear?

What Would Cause Quicklaunch To Disappear?

Just booted over to my Win 7 after a couple of days absence and discovered my extra taskbar toolbars had vanished - Quicklaunch and the Address Bar. The latter was immediately replaceable as it appears on the list of available toolbars but I had to recreate Quicklaunch.

What would cause that I wonder?

Was your Se7en setup shut down suddenly? I've noticed that a lot of thing 'revert' back to default settings after an abnormal shutdown.

Strange but you could try a system restore to revert recent changes. Didnt quite sure why it happened though.

It's back now OK thanks. Now that I think about it, yes, I had an abnormal shutdown and I never booted back into seven for a while to check things out. That could well be the cause.
Funny, had a few of those and never had this happen.
