Hi folks, Need a bit of help here. When I installed my Win8.1 about a month ago, I had configured my setup so it was as much like WinXP as I could get it. As such, I had enabled the Quick Launch tool bar, moved it to the left side of my screen on the bottom, and filled it with about a dozen of my shortcuts. This morning, when I turned my computer on, it was gone. The task bar, start button, clock and system tray are all normal but my quick launch bar is gone. Who stole it? Show yourself! Is there a way to retrieve it with all my settings short of using a restore point? Thanks,

I ended up doing a system restore but when I came back to my computer, it said the restore operation failed and did not complete and that my system was not restored. Funny thing is, my quick launch bar was back!! Go figure...

Sounds like you better get Macrium Reflect or some other Imaging program and create an image incase you ever need to restore again.
