When I right click on the task bar not only the quick launch option is grayed out and not usable but all the other choices eg.address, links, new tool bar are not usable.  How can I activate and use the quick launch function?

Almateri, there are a number of reasons for this to happen.

If you have Tweakui installed in the Control Panel and have used it's IE4 disable feature, this will cause it.

To resolve this issue, enable Internet Explorer in TweakUI:
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click TweakUI, click the IE4 tab, click to select the IE4 enabled
   check box, and then click OK.
3. Restart your computer.

This may also be cause if you have a few damaged files, and can even be caused by having too many temporary internet, history and cookie files.

Let me know!

Dear Dennis;

Your answer helped solve my problem! It wasn't my tweakUI program that caused my quick launch to be disabled, it was a similar program called tweak Jr99.  Sure enough it had the IE4 tab and allowed me to enable my 'quick launch' feature.
Thanks for getting back to me so soon with info that worked.

All the best,
