 Taskbar in XP (Home) Won't Stay Locked

Does anyone have info on why my taskbar (WinXP Home
edition) won't stay locked?  It is currently on left side
of the screen and set at three icons wide.  When I
reboot, the taskbar is one icon width narrower than how I
left it. It doesn't matter how many icons wide the
taskbar is at shutdown, upon reboot, it is always 1 icon
narrower.  The taskbar is locked at all times (except for
when I have to unlock it to resize, after which I relock
it).  Any ideas?

 Taskbar in XP (Home) Won't Stay Locked

I have the same problem but when the taskbar is at the
bottom. I leave it 2 icons tall and find it as default, 1
icon tall, after every reboot. This is damn annoying as
the effort of unlocking, resizing, locking is not a big
deal. It is just driving me nuts. I searched all the
rgistry to find something and i found the seeting for the
taskbar size, contents and all BUT ITS NOT CLEAR TEXT.

I will post a followup for all who is intersted (as i am)
in debugging the info in that registry value.

 Taskbar in XP (Home) Won't Stay Locked
I found a solution for my particular situation (taskbar on the left side, 3
or 4 icons wide), of sorts.  I set the width to 5 icons and I have not
experienced the problem since.

I'm sure there is a Registry fix for less than 5 icons wide, but I don't
have any idea where one would start.  This isn't a fix, more of a
work-around since I would have preferred 4 icons....

1.Taskbar won't stay hidden

Running XP Pro, my taskbar won't stay hidden. The only way I can make it 
autohide, is to uncheck and recheck auto-hide on the taskbar properties.
As soon as I bring it up, it then stays there until I disable and enable
auto-hide again. I've tried closing everything running in the background
in the taskbar. I've also made sure that "lock the taskbar" is not
checked. Anyone have any ideas on this. It's driving me crazy and that's
a short trip. <G>
