Common Places folder on desktop

Posted: 07-27-2006, 06:59 PM
This little rascal has just appeared on the desktop and I can't get rid of
it. It's not in any of the various user Desktop folders.

Left-clicking does nothing and a right-click gives one option "Create
shortcut".

Does anyone know what it is and how I can remove it.

Thank you.

Here's an update on the little blighter :-

I rebooted and it's disappeared from the desktop. I'd still like to know
what caused it. Prior to it appearing I was messing around with permissions
and the like.

The exact this happened to me and I, as of yet, have not been able to find
out the reason for it, but I am glad that it is gone.

I thought that I might not be able to get rid of it.
