Without sounding self righteous or sarcastic, YES!
I seem to recall a document from the knowledge base several months ago that
pointed towards a registry key that had gone awry. However I have been
unsuccessful in finding it and hoped that his might be the place in which to
gather useful info. I guess time will tell. Thank you for your effort in
helping me.

There are two forms of the Quick Launch error:

1) After every reboot, you have to manually restart Quick Launch, or
2) when you try to activate Quick Launch, you get a "Cannot create
toolbar..." error.

If you are encountering problem #1 above, then do the following:

1. In Registry Editor (Start > Run... > regedit), navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

2. Find the "Userinit" key
3. it probably contains:

%system32%\wsaupdater.exe,

where %system32% represents the path to the System32 folder. For example,
C:\Windows\System32

4. Instead of wsaupdater.exe, the data should contain userinit.exe,. Using
the example above, change it to:

C:\Windows\System32\userinit.exe,

Do not forget to add the comma at the end!!!

5. Close the Registry Editor and reboot your computer.

This may help.

Check that this folder exists after rebooting:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\QuickLaunch

If not, create it, then enable the Quicklaunch bar.
