Odd entries appearing in Windows 7 taskbar

Hi,

I recently started seeing odd entries on my Windows 7 laptop and didn't do anything I know of to put them there.  See the attached jpg image for what I mean.  There is a Libraries icon, as well as an Administrator, Computer, Network and Control Panel icon.

I looked in the properties for the task bar but didn't see anything I could play with that makes them disappear.   ?

Thanks!

Try a right click on your Toolbar and choose Toolbars instead of Properties.  See if Desktop is ticked.  If it is then untick it.

The setting is a property of the task bar.
Right click the taskbar > toolbars > uncheck Desktop

Do you see this on all your network machines

You've somehow managed to add a Desktop quick access bar. Just right-click on the handle or Desktop text, and untick or delete (can't remember which one).

Also Right Click on it and see if you can Unpin it. That is likely to work as well.
