Windows 7 Pinning vs Quick Launch

I have a principal at my office, he's past addiction on the Quick Launch toolbar. And of course Windows 7 hid that from users.

We were able to create anew toolbar using the command to pull it back up, and it shows for a day or so then at a restart, the Quick Launch toolbar is missing.

When he calls it back, all the icons he put in there are there, but the problem is it keeps dissappearing on him.

Is there ANY registry hack to force this to stay on there?

I asked him about Pinning to the taskbar, but tells me that the pinned icons shift around on him, so if we can truly lock down pinned items, I'm OK with that as well. But would really like to quiet him by making the Quick Launch permanently remain for him.

Thanks everyone for the assistance!

In my opinion, the creative juggling required to make something similar to a quick launch toolbar on a Windows 7 machine is more trouble than it's worth.

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure what he means when he claims that "the pinned icons shift around on him."  How so?  They only move if the user intentionally changes their order... just like they did within original quick launch toolbar in previous versions of Windows.

I really think that pinning his shortcuts to the taskbar would be the best solution for him... it provides the same type of function with even more capabilities.
