I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am having some trouble with my taskbar, I went online to find out how to do the Quick Launch thing, but when I tried it, it doesn't seem to appear properly. Now there's a gap in the taskbar, where I can't put any toolbars in it. And also, when I open programs, they all appear in the gap!

I've attached a screenshot here for reference, so that you can understand the problem better.

This references showing Toolbar rows Icons Taskbar 3 2-line Taskbar Large small using Quick Launch Bar icons don't wrap even though there is room - a post by chillz which discovers a quot bug quot with the taskbar not resetting the row-sizing for toolbars when dragging the taskbar to the left then back to the bottom I for a while now have been using a custom quick-launch toolbar on my taskbar with the taskbar being unit-lines in height and having the taskbar on my secondary left monitor When I first set this up it showed lines of small icons in the toolbar and up to lines on the standard taskbar This was perfect because the toolbar didn't reset the order every time I launched an application contrary to how the pinned application system works With pinned applications no matter what position I drop the icon the order always resets and floats from place to place so that system of organizing icons is disgusting because you have apps between icons of apps that aren't running some times and other times the running applications are above and Taskbar Toolbar showing 3 small rows using Large Icons 2-line Taskbar below with or without grouping enabled The vertical display would be the ideal way for me to view unlaunched applications see aforementioned topic because they group together and launched apps come after in horizontal mode the taskbar is chaotic without a toolbar organizing the apps to one side but then you lose the functionality of the pinned-application system if you forfeit usage of that chaotic horizontal system in favor of how the vertical system works but in horizontal mode To the point After an update restart the toolbar reset and only showed lines despite there being more than enough room for rows of small icons I couldn't figure out what happened or what changed and then I read the aforementioned topic after some searching to find it actually worked Moving the taskbar to the left then back down resets the order so lines can be used on a line-unit height taskbar with large icons I would like to see several things fixed - Fix the chaotic organizing system of the horizontal taskbar to match the vertical display mode so pinned-apps are always on one side and use all lines while opened apps read like a book Other people will likely have a different opinion to this suggestion and I'd like to read them - Fix the toolbar icon organizational system so all space can be utilized without needing to move the taskbar each restart or update I have yet to restart since fixing the issue and I rarely restart as it is but others may not keep their pc running stressful on components to keep restarting Again I'd like to read others opinions on this but I'm sure most will agree on this point that unused space shouldn't be wasted Here we see all rows in my quick-launch toolbar Unfortunately without restarting or receiving a new update I can't reset the toolbar back to lines which is fantastic and I didn't take a screenshot prior to moving the taskbar to the left then back down but for simple effect imagine the top lines visibly the bottom invisible and an arrow on the right for extra icons and that is the default view You'll likely be able to repeat the effect if you don't have a toolbar and try it out

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.

When you've done all that, go to , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless, so do NOT fix anything yet.

A:quick launch toolbar

you can "right mouse button click" on any program icon that you don't want and select delete, and it'll be gone.

often when you install a new program it'll offer you the option of not creating a quick launch icon, ie, if you read what's coming up on the screen instead of clicking "ok" all the way through the installation steps :)

but ofcourse some programs don't :( then you just have to delete it manually after.

Running Win 2K Pro, which I just got a couple of days ago. When I hover the mouse pointer over an icon in the Quick Launch toolbar, a yellow box appears giving me the name of the associated program. For Outlook 2000, besides telling me the program name it tells me what I can do with it ("Send and receive e-mail; manage your schedule, contacts and tasks . . . ."). Is it possible to edit this feature so it only gives me the program name? Or, as an alternative, can I turn this feature off entirely?

About 2-3 times a year, my quick launch toolbar gets turned off. I know how to turn it back on (right-click | toolbars | check quick launch). But when it reappears, I find that it has been resorted alphabetically. (Grrrr.)
I would like a way to stop it from getting resorted. Failing that, I'd like a way to save a copy that I can then restore if it gets screwed up.

A:Quick launch toolbar gets turned off and resorted

You can't always prevent it, but the closest thing you can do is
1.  Redo it the way you want (which you've obviously done before), then when finished,
2. Right-click on the taskbar and select 'Lock the Taskbar'.
3. As an added precaution, do the same in the Start Menu (right-click on Start menu then Properties, Taskbar Tab, then be sure 'Lock' is checked).
4.  You can't really save your toolbar because its contents are in the registry, so you can't override it.  But you can get something like ScreenHunter 6.0 Free and take screenshots of your Quick Launch.  The QL folder is in C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Microsoft\InternetExplorer\QuickLaunch
Here's a problem, though: you MIGHT not be able to add any shortcuts to the QL now that it's locked, nor can you move them around anymore, though I've not had that problem.
Second problem: when you have a LOT of those shortcuts, you'll wish they would sort in alpha order.  To make them do that, you have to unlock the taskbar, and then do what I did in this video, here.  I show the steps live, harder to explain than to just show.  The video shows Win7, but the mechanics are the same for XP through Windows 10.
Now, maybe you're not interested in anything but Steps 1-4, but at least now you know how your QL disappears and everything is suddenly sorted alpha.  It's a consequence of some program being added to the QL total, and there are so many already, that they auto-sort alpha.  So that means either you need to create a second toolbar (like you'll see in the video, where I have both Desktop and QL), or you'll need to reduce the shortcuts in the bar.
Remember also that uniquely in XP, you can have a toolbar at top and bottom, link is my main XP desktop picture (made using that ScreenHunterFree).
Hope this helps! Yell at me if it doesn't (send me a PM, as notifications are off).

This is hardly an earthshaking problem, but I'd love to know how to put a stop to it.

I have a four miscellaneous applications and one shortcut to an Excel document pinned to my Quick Launch toolbar. Every so often I notice that the icons are missing, the reason being that the toolbar is turned off. When I notice this, I simply turn the toolbar back on from the Taskbar right-click menu. I haven't been paying enough attention to be sure, but I think the problem occurs at boot-up. Maybe one time in three the toolbar doesn't show up. I've never seen the toolbar disappear once the machine is booted up and running. Locking the taskbar doesn't have any effect on the problem.

I'm running XP SP3 and it is current with all patches installed.

Anybody out there have a theory on why this is happening?

I downloaded a program called Paltalk. It put an icon on my quick launch toolbar. I am using WinME. I went into MSCONFIG, deleted the checkmark next to the program on the startup tab, clicked apply, then OK. I then restarted my computer but the icon was still there. I can exit that program from the icon by right clicking it, but it always reappears when I start up. Is there any other way to find out why I can't delete it, or stop it from appearing when I boot up? Thanks.

Hi - newbie here. I joined because I am a new Windows 7 64 bit user and am clueless. I was able to find out how to set up a quick launch toolbar and pin My Computer to it thanks to this forum! I have searched extensively bit haven't found an answer to this one:

How can I pin the Network Icon to the quick launch bar (that I successfully set up thanks to you guys)? I was able to create a desktop icon but when I drag it to the taskbar it only gives a "pin to show desktop" choice. No choice to pin to quick launch toobar (taskbar whatever it's called).

I have been trying to put a link to my desktop on my Quick Launch toolbar. For some strange reason teh icon disappeared and I cannot figure out how to get it back. I have tried everything. How can a find this a reestablish this onto my quick launch toolbar?

A:No link to Desktop on my quick luanch toolbar

You mean a shortcut to the desktop? All you need to do is create one on your desktop and drag it to the QuickLaunch bar.

If the "Show Desktop" shell command file is missing, extract the attached zip file and drag the contained file to QuickLaunch.

For many months, and up until very recently, I have been able to use the pop up 'jump to text' (Quick Scroll??) box that appears in the bottom right of the screen sometimes, after a Google search. The pop up box allows you to find the text relevant to your search quickly and appears on the selected web page after you have done a Google search.

However, the box no longer appears anymore. I have tried unistalling and reinstalling Google Toolbar and I have ensured that the Quick Scroll box is ticked in Toolbar options (the spanner, top right) then tools. This still does not correct the issue.

I am running, and have been for 3 years, Vista and Internet Explorer 7. I don't want to change to IE 8 or 9.

Please could anyone help as I use this feature a lot.

Thank you

Happy New Year,

I'm using XP with 2 gig memory. I used to have 7 or 8 application shortcuts on the quick launch toolbar. When my computer booted up this morning I noticed no shortcuts were showing up. When I right clicked on the taskbar to select the quick launch toolbar I got a dialog box saying "can't create toolbar". Any ideas on how I can fix this?

When I downloaded the Weatherbug program I checked the box next to "add icon to quick launch toolbar" Now the icon [temperature] appears on my taskbar in two places. One next to the start button and one next to the date. I have Foxfire 26.0 running on Windows 7.
I would like to remove the icon next to the start button. How is that done?

Did you try "right clicking" the icon and select "Unpin this program from taskbar"?

FYI, the "Quick Launch Bar" is no longer available by default, but can be added by following the instructions at the following site;

Hi folks, Need a bit of help here. When I installed my Win8.1 about a month ago, I had configured my setup so it was as much like WinXP as I could get it. As such, I had enabled the Quick Launch tool bar, moved it to the left side of my screen on the bottom, and filled it with about a dozen of my shortcuts. This morning, when I turned my computer on, it was gone. The task bar, start button, clock and system tray are all normal but my quick launch bar is gone. Who stole it? Show yourself! Is there a way to retrieve it with all my settings short of using a restore point? Thanks,

I've not experienced it disappearing myself. Is the physical folder location still there?

A:[Random problem] the Quick Launch toolbar disappears

Hello Domenek,

You might see if these steps may help.

Quick Launch - Enable or Disable9. Now that you have Quick Launch on the taskbar, you will need to save your current theme (step 4 at this link).
NOTE: If you make any changes to your theme, you will need to save the theme afterwards, or you will lose Quick Launch the next time you restart the computer.

10. If you have a 32-bit Windows 7, then it has been reported that you may need to turn off UAC if Quick Launch is disappearing on you after every restart.

Hope this helps,

I have Windows xp and a Broadband connection. I want to put IE 6 & OE 6 onto my Quick Launch Toolbar, so that they launch automatically rather then me having to click on them. When I drag the icons to the QL TB they do not stay there. What can I do, if anything?

A:Internet Explorer 6/OutlookExpress 6 onto Quick Launch Toolbar

Right click on the taskbar and uncheck "Lock The Taskbar" then drag them onto the QL bar.

However that won't launch them automatically, thats just so you can easily single click on them no matter what you're doing without using the desktop icons or Start Bar.

To have programs automatically start when you boot your computer you need to put them in the startup folder in the programs list. You can also just drag them into that folder. I personally wouldn't want them open everytime I started the computer though.

I am using a computer here at work. The administration has restricted anyone to access the taskbar properties (right click taskbar, click properties: that menu). I would like to display my Quick Launch toolbar, but unfortunately I cannot access that menu. Also, when I right-click the toolbar and point to Toolbars, all of the options are greyed out and I cannot select any of them. Is there any way possible to display my Quick Launch toolbar? Perhaps through editing the registry? This is just a very annoying problem, as I have to minimize every single window each time I want to open something on the desktop or go into the start menu. Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you.

If my lingo is right, this question concerns the toolbar on the Taskbar. Right-click on the Taskbar, Toolbars, New
Toolbar. At that point, I get
"C:\Users\Barak\Documents\Programs\Programs refers to a location that is unavailable . . . "
Explorer also opens to Libraries>Documents>Programs>Programs which notes "This folder is unavailable."
How do I create a new toolbar?

And a bonus - too petty for its own post . . .
In all previous versions of Windows the Close\Restore\Minimize buttons (top right) were in identical positions. I could leave my mouse in one position, click ten times, and minimize ten apps. Not in W8. Those icons? are different sizes so some clicks minimize, some restore, and some are to the left of Minimize. Any way to get them all the same size?

In this window, navigate to the folder from which you want to create the toolbar and click Select folder in the dialog. If something prevents you from doing this, provide a screenshot or record your actions with psr (type on the start screen).
As for the second questions, it's a good idea to start a separate thread and provide visuals to support the text description, as it's not completely clear what's going on.

I had a custom quick launch toolbar displayed on my Windows 7 Professional taskbar. Somehow, when I first set it up, I was able to rearrange the order of the programs on the toolbar and the order was saved so that it was the same every time I rebooted. I inadvertently removed this custom toolbar. When I selected the same folder as a new toolbar, it displays all the programs, but I cannot figure out how to get it to remember the order of the programs when I reorder them. Every time I reboot, it comes back in alphabetical order.

I've searched every set of keywords I can think of and can't find my answer. Hopefully someone here can help me. Thanks!

I've just moved up from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Ultimate. Some probs but reasonably manageable so far.
One thing bugs me. With XP, I've liked to have a taskbar autohiding at the bottom of my screen, and a toolbar autohiding at the right-hand side in which I keep shortcuts to all my favourite applications and some folders/files.
When I right-click to open a new toolbar, it gets added as an adjunct to the existing taskbar at bottom of screen. I can't physically separate it.
Is this a Windows 7 thing? Or am I missing something really obvious? I've clicked the 'don't merge' and that doesn't seem to do anything to resolve this.

I've had Windows 7 for about 10 Days.One of the first things I did was create a quick launch section on the task bar. Had about 8 icons in this quick launch and everything worked fine for about 5 days.Then the quick launch area on the tool bar just vanished. The rest of the tool bar is still there and works just fine.I thought I would just create a new toolbar and start over, however when I click on the "tooolbars>new toolbar" up pops the Explorer " libraries>documents" page. This page also pops up if I try to pin anything to the task bar.EG I click and drag an icon to the task bar,click "pin to taskbar" and instead of the icon showing up a copy of "libraries" folder appears instead.
Would appreciate any suggestions.

I have a Hp Pavilion zc6203cl laptop. I ran Registry Mechanic and used the features to tweak my computer. Something has changed my toolbars and taskbars to gray. Also, boot up is taking much longer. I have tried to restore prior to running the program. My system restore is on but will not restore. Any help would be tremdously appreciated.

Thank you

Hi all,
Just migrated from XP to 7 and one thing I'd like to do is set up my desktop the way it was in XP. I've done just about all the tweaks to accomplish that, but 7 won't let me add a toolbar to the top of the screen as I could in XP. I don't like the dock that came with this computer and I'd rather make my own toolbar. Any way to achieve this? Thanks.

PS. I'm not talking about moving the taskbar or quickbar to the top of the screen. This would be a separate toolbar with a folder as it's contents.

Does anyone know if, when using the "links" toolbar on the taskbar:

i.e.: right click on task bar > click toolbars > check "links" box << to turn it on

can you customize links to open using specific browsers? I guess this doesn't really matter, but if it is just a matter of a few clicks then it would be worth it.

My default browser is firefox, but the outlook web access is crappy in firefox and I need to use IE for I'm wondering if I can make all the links in the links bar open in firefox (not hard since it is default) but then make just the link for email open in IE.

You can edit the link to something like:

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://....

every time i restart my computer, the taskbar shows the language bar (picture of a microphone)

i right click the taskbar and click the language bar off, but every time i restart, it's there again

anybody know how to make it so that it won't show up when i restart?

A:Language toolbar on taskbar

The Language Bar is a part of windows Office. To remove it you have to go into add/remove programs and do a "change" then add/remove features. Under Office Tools make sure to uncheck the Language Settings Tool (also go through all of the other stuff that is installing and make sure that "Spanish" and "French" are unchecked. I think it auto installs the language bar if you install any additional languages.

Hope that helps

Got a prompt from Apple that a new version of itunes was available. Stupidly dl'd it. In the middle of its installation, it stalled forever, so I hit "stop" and--nothing. So cntrl/alt/delete got rid of it and itunes which was also up, but my taskbar and a roboform toolbar disappeared, and the address bar and the other stuff normally appearing at screen top is also gone, but comes back if I run cursor to top of screen, then disappears again as soon as cursor leaves top of screen. How to fix?

I normally use a single-height taskbar. But everytime I add the Quick Launch toolbar to the taskbar, the taskbar doubles in height. I tried grabbing the dividers and sliding them, but they don't move. Any advice? Thanks!

My friend is coming from XP and has his quick launch toolbar on the top of the desktop and his taskbar on the bottom.

I know there is a hack to (kind of) enable the quick launch menu, but is it possible to get it separate from the taskbar?

He would like to avoid using something like a dock program. See the attached pic for an example.

Sorry, I don't think you can do that natively in Win 7.

I just recently downloaded a new version of Quick Time. It put Quick Time and Quick Time Player on my task bar. Is it necessary to have it there to watch downloaded video? I know I can remove it by going to startup but would that effect performance? Also when I installed a new cdrw/dvdrom that came with Nero express software, incd was part of the software package. Do Nero and incd work together? Do I need to keep incd in startup in order for Nero to work correctly? Thank you in advance for your help.

I'm running Windows xp (sp1), and a while back I noticed that my taskbar was locked at two spaces high, although I did not have the task bar locked. The only way I was able to overcome this was to uncheck "Show Quick Launch". Any ideas on what I did and how to correct it would be appreciated.

A:Problem with Quick Launch on Taskbar

Right click on the taskbar and verify that the taskbar is unlocked. Then drag the cursor just over the top edge till it changes shape. The click and drag.

Hi to all,
I am having a problem with this doggone windows 8 and I had gone to another help site to fix the problem. I had almost got the problem solved and lo and behold I cant access that site anymore. I will give the name of the site and the message I get if you need it.

I was having a problem with my quick launch on the taskbar like in Vista. I had it fixed except the quick launch is now on the right and I don?t have the little arrows that you use to put stuff on the quick launch. Also I don?t have the desktop icon anymore. Thanks in advance for any help.

A screenshot would help.

Today I noticed that there is a small problem in the height of the Win7 taskbar if I select Large icons in the Quick Launch toolbar. (before I always used small icons)

In the Large view the Win7 taskbar doesn't fill the space vertically but is aligned to the top leaving some empty space at the bottom.
Please check the attached screenshots to better understand what I mean.

I know is really a small detail, but maybe someone knows a way around it anyway^^

i think that may be a problem due to having names show in the icon. is the space still there if you disable names?

Recently, i have been trying to add new items to the quicklaunch bar but i couldn't because a red block sign would come on front of it.
But i can pin it to Start Menu though.
Any help would be appreciated,
