remove windows xp sidebar

August 17, 2011 at 13:53:04
Specs: Windows XP
A 3" blue sidebar with 3 dropdowns boxes appeared. What caused it, is a mystery to me. The sidebar dropdowns are titled Folder Tasks, Other Places, and Details. I don't know how it got there and I can't figure out how to remove it. Please help.

Qckdraw, If this appears on your Desktop go to the link below and download the XP_CommonTasks.exe file. Instructions are on the page and it will correct your problem.

If you mean that it shows up on all Windows Explorer windows just open Windows Explorer, click Tools>Folder Options and under the General tab untic "Show Common Tasks in folders, click Apply/OK.
