Someone reported back this worked.
Don't restart. Instead, logout. Then on the login screen restart and see if it remembered.
Anybody have any ideas how to repair Windows XP Home so that my taskbar will remember which toolbars were open - after a restart.
It seems a little "maintenance" (Reg cleaner) I did might have caused Windows to forget my settings. I am not sure if that is the source of the problem or not. I can go and manually add them back after each restart but if there is a way to repair what is missing so they return to their correct setting by themselves that would be great.
I have tried Taskbar Repair Tool Plus! but that didn't seem to help.
I ahve also tried unlocking the taskbar, removing all toolbars, creating a new toolbar, and everything is forgotten after restart.
Any help would be appreciated.
