I am helping a friend who is new to computing and as a Laptop with Vista and I am used to XP.

I cannot remove on the right hand side of the monitor a display the depth of the screen and about 2 inch wide full of adverts etc.
How do I remove it?

This is one of Vista's "Cool new features" Drives you nut's doesn't it?

Right click at the top of it, choose properties and from there you can Disable it temporarily, or permanently (Untick the start sidebar when windows starts box)

I hate it too :))

Should have said, that's what it's called, the sidebar.
