What you are describing is the Toolbar (near the top), not the Taskbar (at the bottom).
Perhaps one of your security programs is preventing writes to the Registry, which
causes a setting change to not be saved. Some of the programs known to cause this:
IBM Access Connections
McAfee VirusScan and/or Antispyware
Spybot> Tools> IE Tweaks
Zone Alarm (free) 6.5 Reported to be fixed in later versions.
