    Quick Launch quit working.

    Reading through your post, you said that you moved the items in Documents and Settings. That would explain the absence of your quicklaunch bar, which in Win2k is unique to each user and stored with their profile.

    Good luck!

    Mark,

    Thanks for the direction. I went back and pretty much fixed everything. Got everything stabilized and will try the copy to new user later when I've got the time.

    Hey, if that provided assistance, I am truly glad! If your time is anything like mine, then you won't find time later.... <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
