Stuck Toolbars

Some times back I've created a folder "My Toolbars" with 3 folders in it
toolbar1, toolbar2 and toolbar3.  I filled the toolbar folders with
shortcuts and placed them on the task bar.  One day I tried to rename one of
the toolbar folders and discovered that it cannot be done.  Neither can any
of the three toolbars be removed.


If I rename for instance "toolbar2" folder to any other name then, after
reboot, an empty toolbar named "toolbar2" is displayed on the taskbar.  
If I rename the folder back to its original name everything returns to
the previous state.

If I delete for instance "toolbar1" folder then, after reboot, an empty
toolbar "toolbar1" is displayed the taskbar.  If I recreate the deleted
folder everything returns to the previous state.

If I close any of the toolbars, after reboot they get displayed again.

If I create new toobar then, after reboot it is gone.

Quick Launch toolbar shows icon in sorted order only (except desktop,
that always comes up in the leftmost position).

I searched thru registry for toolbar names but came up with zilch.
So where is the toolbar information stored and/or how can the toolbar
functionality be restored to the old flexible self

I am running Win98se on PIII

Thanks
cj

Put and actual file, in addition to the shortcuts, in one of the toolbar folders and see if that makes the folder act normal.

Strange thing, I have neither the "NoBandCustomize" nor
"NoToolbarCustomize" keys in my registry.  But while I was
there I noticed "NoSaveSettings" key that was enabled.  I
turned it off and after couple of reboots the toolbars
started responding :))

Thanks for showing me the way
