My Vista machine recently started aligning my Quick Launch popup and program menu drop downs as far left as possible <see screenshots> instead of to the right as usual. I assume there is a registry key that controls this, but I am unsure what one to look at. I set up a new user account, and that works as expected, so it appears to be attached to my user account. Any ideas?

>> Quick Launch is not enabled by default, to create the Quick Launch toolbar perform the following procedure.

>> 1. In an empty space in the Taskbar, right-click.
>> 2. Select Toolbars, New Toolbar.
>> 3. In the Folder text box, type: %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
>> 4. Click Select Folder.
>> 5. The Quick Launch toolbar displays in the taskbar.

>> To modify the Quick Launch toolbar properties, unlock the taskbar, right-click the Quick Launch toolbar title.

>> Change any of the toolbar properties.

Thanks for the suggestion, but the problem is not that I can't create "Quick Launch". All of my menu popups or dropdowns are misaligned.

Probably, the quickest fix would be to create new profile, transfer all data there and delete old profile.
