I have resolved the problem as follows:

The Quick launch Tool bar was recreated by creating the folder of that title in Windows/Application data/microsoft/ internet explorer and sdding the appropriate shotcuts to it.

After tryning any options ,the Office icons and shorcuts have been repaired by eading the users manual "Discovering Microsoft Office XP Standar and Professional". This indicated that the "detect and Repair" option within the help menu is more than in previopus Office versions. executing the "Detect and Repair" option rebuilt the shortcuts and icons for Office programs.

Right click your Taskbar, select properties and ensure that 'Show Quick Launch' is ticked.

it is ticked but nothing is showing near the green start button

Open Windows Explorer, find the programs that you want to quick launch and drag the icon to the quick launch bar, next to the Start button.
