Adding items to "Quick Launch" causes reboot

W2K SP4

When I try to add any program to the Quick Launch toolbar, it reboots the
computer. If I add a shortcut to the desktop, there is no problem. Even
trying to add the desktop shortcut to the quick launch causes the same reboot.

Has anyone had this experience? Is there a known bug or fix for it? I've
never seen this before. Is there another way to add items to the quicklaunch
toolbar. All that I have there now is: IE, Outlook and Desktop.

Thanks. Diana

Well you can always try to add the shortcut manually and no I've never heard of or seen this.

In Windows Explorer select C:\Documents and Settings\%PROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

Then right-click in an open area on the right choose New | Shortcut | browser to the executable you want the Quick Launch to | Name it | OK.

That should put an entry in Quick Launch for you without a reboot.

This problem has been fixed by a new patch in Windows Update. Check it
out.
