    Churin,

    There's no telling what could be the cause of this possible corrupt account issue.

    You can copy the contents of your old account's user folders into the corresponding new account's user folders to copy over all of your settings and shortcuts from the old account. After everything checks out, you can delete the old account from within the new one.

    That's something I thought about but was not sure if it would solve the problem because the new account might inherit corrupt part of the old account profile. Anyway I will try that and will post back.

    Edit: I logged in to the new account to start the work but found no Quick Launch. The account was created for experimental purpose as you suggested. I previously reported there was no problem on the new account but that is found to be incorrect. The Quick Launch setting could stand aleast one cycle of Boot/Reboot but obviosly no more.

    Umm, try a repair install to see if it may be able to stop this without losing anything.

    I am out on the road now and I will try the repair install when I will be back home in a couple of days.

    I did the repair install but that did not cure the problem.

    After the repair install, I rebooted the system and the Quick Launch showed up. Then I rebooted again and found that the Quick Launch disappeared.

    I have three other W7 machines and one of them also has the same problem. I do not have any idea to try. Maybe this is a bug which requires a hotfix from MS for resolution.

    Churin,

    I'm not sure why either since it works fine on my system even after a restart.


    To see if there may be a common cause with others that may have this problem:
    • How did you install your Windows 7 originally? (ex: clean, upgrade, etc...)
    • What build or copy of Windows 7 are you using? (ex: retail, torrent, etc...)
    • What antivirus program, or any other security program, are you using?
    • Anything else that you can think of that may not be a part of a normal installation.

    Thanks!


    Thanks a lot for this Guide , I am one of those who cant seem to deal with the pin to taskbar option. I find that switching between simular docs, webpages is harder to sort. Also having to right click to open new instance was annoying. Items moving around and the amount of room they took. Also it was harder to tell if a program was running or not. I just hope my quicklaunch doesnt start disapearing, especially when changing themes.

    I do feel like some people use quick lanch as Start menu! IMO, The show desktop button is most important for me as well as 4-5 quick lanch apps. Programs I use daily that dont stay open all the time (IE, FF, Xfire, etc) If I use a program once or twice a week I may pin it to start menu, if use it any less it is either on the desktop or more than likely in the start menu. If it is a program that stays open, hopefully it shows in the taskbar (like nvidia ctrl panel etc.).

    Funny thing too, before finding this guide I tried to pin show desktop to the taskbar couldnt do it. It will let you send it to desktop as a shortcut LOL. So if I minimize all my prgs to see desktop I can click on show desktop and guess what happens.....The programs pop back up. ROFL.

    Please see the attached table. W7 is that which was downloaded direct from MS and is the same as retail version. Thus W7 were installed to Unit B,C,D from the same physical DVD. I thought of finding something in common among those which have the problem to determine the possible cause but could not see anything.
