I've noticed this with my Outlook Express under XP.

When I use either Quicken 2009 or TurboTax,
the icons on my Outlook Express toolbar change.

I normally have them as "small icons".
But after using Quicken or Turbotax,
the icons are BIG and shifted across the toolbar line
such that my "Send/Receive" icon is no longer present.

I seem to recall a DLL for these toolbar functions,
and am guessing that Quicken loads a version that says "big icons",
and Turbotax loads yet another DLL that says "huge icons".

Is everything back to normal if you close & reopen OE?

Does this happen when you run either application with OE running in the
background or when you install one or both of the applications?

OE File | Identities | Manage identities: Is there only one (1) identity
listed here and is it called Main Identity?

just checked while typing this out....
it's only TurboTax that's causing the problem -
the Quicken program does not affect things.

open OE, everything is ok - and minimize it.

open TT, and after the initial info prompts, it loads
and that's when the OE toolbar gets changed.

I click on the minimized OE, check it, and min it.
So, at some point it's getting a different icon control module.
..
Only a single Identity is defined and used - as seen in the menu

That does not answer my very specific question nor did you answer my first
question.
