Hey guys/gals:

I am wondering if anyone can help me out here. I have been searching online and trying sysdiffs of a Windows XP machine to see where the registry entry is to unlock the taskbar and also enable the quick launch toolbar. I have been unsuccessful in my attempts and am hoping some of you may know? I am under a deadline to figure this out due to a high number of new builds coming up in 2 weeks so I will up the points for this reason! Thanks to all!

-Brian
