    I have a white pane covering my desktop icons and cannot get rid of it. It is a html fill that is showing this. Any help out there?

    How and when did it get there? Does it have a name?

    And what happens when you try to delete it?

    If you navigate to %UserProfile%\desktop

    can you see it there and delete it?

    Try this, right click the desktop> properties> desktop tab> customize desktop> web tab> uncheck anything in the webpages window and ok your way out.
