Quick Start Toolbar size - Order of Icons

Hi all. I would like to know how to fix the size of the quick start toolbar,
as I have to enlarge it every time I start windows. I would like it to have a
fixed size if possible. Also, icons are organised by alphabetical order and I
would like to change that, but every time I start up windows, they go back to
alphabetical order. Please advise. Thanks.

The easiest way I've found of making your quicklaunch settings "really
permanent" is by using Free Launch Bar: http://www.freelaunchbar.com/. It
was made for XP, but works fine here with Vista too.

The toolbar layout settings are unusual in that they are read at login, held
& modified in memory throughout a session, & only written at logoff.

So the first thing to try is logging on, configuring Quick Launch, then
logging off & back on. If they're not saved, check your event logs to see
if any errors are being generated during logoff.

Thanks Keith. I am not fluent in admin tools, and can not understand all the
messages in the event viewer... I will keep on trying. Thanks again.
