hi ya guys, System is XP home i encountered a strange happening yesterday as i was about to do a manual defrag; accessed acessories entered the dropdown list and somehow accidently clicked somewhere in the box before pointing on defragment and the system tools folder is now on the desktop as a shortcut, i would like to put the folder back in it's rightful place. can anyone provide the right sequence to restore to normal please.

if it no longer appears in accessories, then grab the shortcut on the desktop and hold it over the 'start' button, then navigate back to programs/accessories and drop it back in.

i cant remember if that is the corect way, it may put the shortcut back, and it no longer expands, you'll have to try.

Do a system restore to a time before you messed up.
