    not sure what happened, i think it has something to do with desktop cleanup
    didn't know what that was till all the icons on my desktop disappeared
    anywho after 60 days it runs and takes all the icons off your desktop (at least thats what happened)
    all i got now is recycle bin and microsoft outlook
    no problem there
    but now my quick launch is gone and for some reason all my contacts in outlook are missing
    everything was working fine before this happened


    when i try to show quick launch it says toolbar cannot be created

    i checked microsoft out they said something about that happening when you install tweak ui but i never did that so the value they mentioned is not present in my reg

    anyone know what happened????

    To create a Quick Launch bar manually, Open your drive C (or wherever you have your root directory), and then follow this path:

    D:\Documents and Settings\Gothic \Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\

    (Where Gothic is replaced by your personal user name)

    and then create a new folder called simply "Quick Launch"

    then right click on the taskbar, and goto desktops, and Quicklaunch should be there. (I hope!!)
