Why would you want to remove it? It brings up a sub menu of useful shortcuts.

me too .....

It is utterly annoying, it always appears when I just want to start messenger, then I need to click on my desktop to get rid of it to start all over again to get messenger running and btw I never use any of the "use full" links swarfega, just want to start messenger!

Tried a lot of things but nothing worked so far, I'm hoping that apatch will soon find something.
I send them a post about it, you never know.....

Good luck with this hard quest ....
