Non changing Task Bar

I have an Evesham Micros computer with an AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core processor, 1gig memory running Windows XP Media Centre. I am trying to tidy up my task bar but every time I boot up the task bar reverts back to the old look. I apply the changes I make but they do not seem to stay after the next boot, only for that session. Is it me?

Re: Non changing Task Bar

Roger, Can you explain a little better what you change that doesn't hold on restart? After you make whatever changes are you right clicking the Taskbar and choosing Lock the Taskbars?

Tidying the task bar....

What are you trying to remove ? Icons at the ''Quick Launch Bar'', which is next to the Start button or near the middle of the task bar, or do you mean the icons at the ''System Tray'' or ''Notification Area'', which is next to the clock ?

If the later, you have to go to the programs represented by the icons for Options and Preferences and set it up to not show on the tray, or go to Start-Run-->msconfig to disable the programs on startup. Or go to the ''startup folder'' to remove the programs of your choice, if present there.
