Hello, My XP desktop now has on the left hand side a blue border (with Folder Tasks, Other Places and Details) as you would see if viewing folders. How do I get rid of it. Thank you for your time, assistance and patience. BEG

Hello Hamster and welcome to Geeks To Go!

I think this is a pretty simple fix:

Right click some where on the new bar that has showed up.
Make sure you right click in a blank spot and not on top of a tab, file or folder listing
in the context menu goto Toolbars and see what is there? see if by un-checking some of those tool bars you can get it to go away?

Just a thought,

Security Goat

I think you are referring to the Common Tasks Pane. If so, try this fix from Doug Knox: http://www.dougknox....ask_desktop.htm
