    How do I get rid of a 2 inch wide blue band that is on the left side of my
    screen in Favorites, Recycle Bin, Explorer and other windows? It appeared
    after I had been in System Properties at the Advanced Tab and clicked on
    Settings. I made a change but changed it back. Now this awful blue band
    with File and Folder Tasks on top and other entries below. Obviously it's a
    Windows thing. Please help.
