I left my computer on overnight and came in the next morning to find that a
menu was taking up a fourth of the screen on the left side. It shows foldet
tasks, other places and details. I have tried to remove it to no avail. I
have also had friends try to remove it but after hours of effort it remains.
I tried system restore to the previous day but it remained.

Thanks
Frank
