Right click the Taskbar, Properties, Taskbar, Customize, Always hide. By the way, it's not in Add/Remove is it?

i tried system restore and tried going into the taskbar but everything is correct.
i am sure when i was saving the pic i clicked save as desktop item, it then came up as a box on my screen in the bottom rihgt hand corner about 3 inches by 2 inches. i tried right clicking it and it highlighted, i went to properties and tried to change the wallpaper which it did but the box is still there with the same pic.
i cant get rid of this box,please help!
i am using xp pro

What options do you get if you right click it?

Right click on your desktop, choose 'Properties' then 'Web', select what you don't want and click delete.

Have you tried running the desktop clean up wizard?,also see if the icons are locked to desktop and untick this in properties.

i found it out it's right click on your desktop select 'properties','desktop', 'customize desktop', 'web', and delete the web page.
thanks to everyone trying to help.
its amazing what you can learn just by playing around!
