Windows 7: 7100 forgets quicklaunch and presents login screen

I have become happy with pinning items to the task bar but I remember that the quicklaunch bar can be created in Windows 7. Do a google under Windows 7 quicklaunch and you will most likely find all the info you need.

Gene: Thanks - I have already installed the quicklaunch bar as suggested in the tutorial (The one in the tutorials section of this board). It works great, but the Quicklaunch is gone every time I restart the computer.

Does anybody know, where windows saves the information concerning the quicklaunch bar? I guess, it just doesn't save the settings, so maybe placing an appropriate file or registry-entry could help.

Another week and I still didn't find a solution for this problem. Can anybody say if the problem is fixed in the recently leaked build 7127?

...nobody...?
Does it work properly on other machines than mine in build 7100 or is it a general bug?

Sorry Caid, but I'm using the 7127 build and cannot replicate the Quick Launch disappearing on me like it is for you. Did you do a clean install when you installed Windows 7?

When my last motherboard was randomly rebooting from blown caps, setting the quick launch would never stick for me...because of the random reboots and not shutting off the right way.

So I'm just wondering that when you reboot, is it clean, as in from the start menu? Or are you just shutting the machine off physically and starting up?

Caid,

This may be able to help restore shutdown for you.

Hope this helps,

Hi Brink,
I have tried the gpedit method to restore shutdown - doesn't work. I tried the regedit, but there is not "noclose" value that I could delete. Strange.

Caid,

Could you post a screenshot of these registry locations below. I'll see if I may be able to spot a entry that may be causing this for you.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
