folder task bar on desktop

  [DELETED] 21:07 29 Jul 2003

My XP Pro machine shut down okay - but has restarted with a folder task bar up left side of my desktop, with no way of turning it off. Machien was virus checked last night and appears clear. Anyone enlighten my ignorance - I really do not appreciate this new arrival.

Have you tried right clicking on the bottom taskbar- toolbars and unticking the options there.

Yes -no option to turn off folder options. I now think this may be a corrupt explorer file, sice the folder options bar changes to reflect whatever desktop icon is currently selected. all I can think of to do now is to try and repair from the XP Pro CD
