    All of a sudden I have a blue 2" wide bar on the left hand side of my desktop that contains three drop down menus Folder Tasks, Other Places and Details. I don't know what I did to get it there or worse still how to get rid of it.
    Any ideas???
    Oh yes it's windows XP Pro
    Thanks

    I think this was meant to be funny but it doesn't make much sense.

    did you drag a folder to the side of the screen and let go by misstake? if so that might be the bar your talking about.

    Thankyou YoYo that did the trick.
    And yes TwoZigzagColt45 I do use Ontrack reg cleaner that comes with Fix-It-Utilities 4.0. Will this be a problem in future do you think?
    Thanks

    Yes Ontrack Fix-it 4 reg cleaner is responsible for your common tasks on your desktop.

    I highly recommend you never use it again

    IMHO unless your doing some tweaking you really don't need to touch the registry.

    the chance of the registry becoming bloated with invalid entries is remote.

    :cool:
