OK I have the panel back. The system tray is in the lower left corner. That is where I want it. In the lower right corner is the icon with the letters "PC" in it. That is OK. The background didn't go to default. I would like to have the default background. In the upper right corner there is window folder called "Desktop Folder". It is open and shows the icons " Home, Firewall, Network Center, and Trash". They were on the Desktop before. But not in a window. When I click in the "PC" icon I don't get the default menu. I get a window with a panel at the bottom. In the panel are icons called "Favorites, Application, Computer, Recently Used, and Leave". What I really want is the way everything was when I first saw it after the install.
Hey I am getting there. I think!!
