I wonder why when I start my XP, Microsoft Office shortcut bar doesn't load.

When I use it for the first time, it asks if I want to load it during next startup and I say "Yes". Then, when I start my XP, it doesn't load. Why it doesn't load?

I tried to find some solution from the Internet and also went to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Shortcut Bar to check the startup value and the value is 1.

Why do you want to start it. Unles you run office a lot it is a resource hog.
On the Microsoft Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Microsoft Office Shortcut Bar.

Not me but my users. I know that to open it, is from start>programs>Microsoft office tools but users don't want to manually do so but automatically have it when they start their pc.
