    Suddenly I have a 2 inch wide vertical blue band on the left side of my
    Recycle Bin, Control Panel, My Computer and other windows. Not my Desktop,
    though. It lists File and Folder Tasks, Other Places, and Details. I
    suppose someone thought this would be very helpful. I don't. Anyone know
    how to get rid of this? Thanks.

    hi,

    That is a part of the new look and feel of windows xp and
    is called the task bar. it shows u relevant commands that
    are common to the folder which you open. this can be
    turned off by switching to classic view. to do that click
    on tools | Folder options and choose classic view.
