Task Bar XP SP2

Hello, I just downloaded XPSP2. At the bottom of my screen I have a new taskbar(I think it is called a task bar)? It appears to be a internet task bar with blocks to show pop up, internet search site, and a few other blocks which I dont know what they do? This is not the regular task bar which I can hide if desired? I have a laptop.

Q)Is there any way to hide this task bar.

Right click toolbar and ...

In reply to: Task Bar XP SP2 properties for many options that control your taskbar, including autohide toolbars and see if you have a toolbar that is selected that you want to deselect.

But since I never heard of that toolbar (I am no expert, mind you) I would also make sure that you are spyware free, since often spyware can change your computer.

Thanks LarrD,

It will not open up with right click.

There is no autohide.

I run 3 spyware and ran em all after installing SP2 today.

Thanks again, D.

In reply to: Re: Right click toolbar and ...

you are going to get very confused with all these threads! try keeping all your (probably related ) issues in one thread. Please link each closed thread to the one that you choose to keep open.

it will be difficult to help when there are so many threads going at once

run SFC and consolidate your posts into one thread
