Windows 7: Windows explorer icon on taskbar function changed

Windows explorer icon on taskbar function changed

Since I started using Win7, the windows explorer icon on the taskbar has never given me any options - left-clicking it opened windows explorer.
Suddenly it has changed - clicking it now brings up "autoplay" and I have to right click to get the option to open explorer ( as well as the options to unpin from taskbar and close the window).
Can anyone tell me how to get it back as it was?
TIA

Welcome to the forums old chadders!

Simple things first, have you tried a system restore to a point before this started?
