On The Left Hand Side Of Desktop Is Big Blue Bar

On the left hand side of my desktop is a big blue bar. It is about 2 and a half inches wide ( from left to right) and goes from the top of my screen to the bottom where the start menu is. I have tried everything I can think of and have been unable to get rid of it. Does anyone know how to remove this. I even tried in msconfig.

Task Bar Desktop Icons - Left Screen Auto Hide Enabled
I've recently re-sized my task-bar to hold my usual desktop icons in the quick-launch area and moved the bar to the left of the screen with auto-hide enabled. All was well until recently when it began to remain on-screen for about 1 min when not in focus. Then it recently began to open on start-up at a size of only 1 icon wide instead of the previously set 3 icons wide. I've made no such changes to the configuration and am curious to know if anyone might know why/how it seems to have obtained a "mind of its own"???

Start Menu / Folder Options: Nothing In The Left-hand Column?
When I open up the Start Menu on one of the accounts, there is nothing in the left-hand column. When I right click and get the Properties, and try to Customize the Menu, the options don't save, and I'm stuck with nothing. I've tried clicking on the Internet radio button for "Show on Start Menu". I click Ok, then Apply, and Finally Ok again. But when I go back to the menu, it still has nothing in the left-hand column.

The second thing I've noticed was under Folder Options -> View, I tried to check both the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" button, and also un-check "Hide extensions for Known File Types" and click on Apply, then Ok again. But still, these options don't save and are reset back to "Do not show hidden files", and "hide extensions".

Computer Not Booting - Flashing Top Left Hand Corner Screen
My computer will not boot up. It gets to a certian point and sits there flashing an underscore in the top, left hand corner of the screen. It has done this before, like it stalled on start up and I would just restart it and it would finish booting but that isn't working. I'm using XP Professional...

I installed a software last night on my computer to allow me to transfer images and stuff to my cell phone (motorolla product). When I was installing it a box or something appeared saying it was suddenly missing files and it wanted me to put in the Service pack 2 disk - which I didn't have. My only guess is that is what caused this problem. I have not saved anything yet (was going to do that tomarrow on my only day off)

In windows 2000, explorer to the left of the folders view, their was a panel that would contain folder/file detail information. This was always displayed even when Folders view was selected to show the folder tree. In XP i can not figure how to get this panel or left side detail view to show.

Yahoo Messenger Side Bar Explorer Bar ?
I really liked but can't seem to find the same for Firefox which is what I mostly use. In IE, under explorer bars, you have the option of yahoo messenger. So, it slaps your messenger window as the lefthand side like a bookmark or history eplorer bar. Problem is this: I can't find the same thing for Firefox.

Big Green Bar Where My Clock And Task Bar Should Be
I installed Paint Shop Pro 8 and a patch to PSP8, when I returned to my desktop, this horrible, empty green bar had taken over the bottom of my desktop. there is nothing on this bar except for the MS flag on the left side. Clicking it allows me to reveal my programs menu,but I have no idea what is open because nothing shows on this bar. I can neither move the bar or see underneath it.
