I have Windows Vista Home Premium and I am having a problem with the Quick Launch Toolbar. Hopefully someone can give me some help or ideas please?

I removed some software that I had been trialling (an automatic defrag program) using an uninstaller that I have been using for years without any problems previously. Since then, my Quick Launch toolbar keeps losing its settings on a re-boot/boot up of my computer and instead of having my icons in a nice order over two lines, the icons become sorted in to one line alphabetically. I have tried a registry hack of "NoSaveSettings" but this hasn't worked.

It's frusrating as I thought I had it sorted last night. When I booted up my computer today, they were where I expected them to be. I then shut down my computer and came back to it later today. Booted up and this time they had all lost their positions and were in one line again. It's almost as if Vista has two boot-up routines and depending on the time of day, it decides on which one to use!! it is very frustrating and I am looking for ideas as to how I can stop this happening without having to either start all over again by re-installing Vista, or setting up a new profile and then spending ages transferring everything across.

Any thoughts or suggestions gratefully accepted.
