Strange Desktop

The Problem:-My desktop shows in the left part of the screen as if it were a common folder, but it's just the desktop! folder tasks, etc. And the quick launch bar icons are all messed up... What has happened?

The VB Script application developed by Doug Knox MS-MVP will correct the Registry setting that causes the Common Tasks pane to appear on the Windows XP Desktop. The correct value is: file://%userappdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop.htt And exists in: HKCR\CLSID\{00021400-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}\shellex\ExtShellFolderViews\{5984FFE0-28D4-11CF-AE66-08002B2E1262} Download the file and run it to overcome from this problem.
