Now, before I tell you how to delete it, I need you to be sure that your "My Documents" folder is safe. If you have your "My Documents" folder actually sitting on your desktop, the first step is to move it back home. It should live at: C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\My Documents. The path will show in the Properties dialog of the system "My Documents" icon. Which one is that?
This is the problem with those of us who customize our Desktops. For an easily accessed list of "System" icons, right click the Taskbar, slide up to Toolbars. and left click the entry for Desktop.
The word "Desktop" will appear just to the left of the Notification Area (System Tray). Click the double > to the right, and a list of System folders will appear along with all the other "stuff" on the desktop. A right click of "My Documents" from this list will give you the path mentioned above. If it is not listed to that directory, change the path in the Properties dialog of "My Documents" before deleting the unwanted toolbar.
In your case, You should have 2 "My Documents" in that list. One will not delete from the list. Good. That is the System Folder. The other should. That will be the toolbar. You can also uncheck the toolbar from the same menu that allowed the display of the "Desktop" toolbar.
If not deleted, at least it will no longer display.
Good luck and let us know about your progress.
