Help

This is a weird one.  I clicked on the folder options icon,  and it opened up fine.  I hit view/restore defaults/apply/ok.  On the desktop suddenly appeared on the left hand side a folder tasks blue bar which I can't get rid of.... i've tried everything. I also have a shortcut to the folder options on my desktop and this has stopped working too.... anyone have any ideas?

thanks

Not sure if this will be any help, but it does sound like your problem

It sounds like the common tasks bar on the desktop that you can't get
rid of, I've read others having the same problem

http://www.dougknox.com/

If you go to that link-----Click on "Windows XP Fixes"-----In the next page Click on "Remove Common Tasks from Desktop"-----

You will have to Download the "XP CommonTasks" Zip file----Extract it
and double click on the .EXE to run the utility and then RESTART your computer... Instructions are on his page...

If it doesn't work have you tried System Restore
Start---All Programs----Accessories-----System Tools----System Restore

Selectable dates will be in Bold

Hope this helps
