Hi Judy,

If you are running XP or Vista, then you can do the following.

Right Click on an empty spot on the desktop.

Select New, Shortcut

where it says "type in location of the item" type in:

http://www.facebook.com/home.php? (no underlines or spaces)

Click Next

In type a name for this shortcut type: facebook

click finish

its on your desktop

Cheers, XXXXX XXXXX

Carl

I haven't tried the facebook icon remedy yet, but I also want to know about the other things I asked you about i.e. small weather window that comes up and the tattoos, tattoons wallpaper, tattodle at the top of this page?
Oh, you had put that under the already tried section...

for the weather program

in XP go under control panel, add remove programs and remove the weather program.

in Vista go under control panel, programs and remove the weather program:

I added the icons!! Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX I addremove the weather channel, then will that take it off my desktop completely? I have the weather channel icon on my desk top. Or will it just remove the bothersom window that comes up everytime I go on the interent?

Honestly, you should remove the weather channel as well. I love that little icon, but it installs with it a lot of programs that cause your pc to be slow and to have pop-ups come up which are annoying.

It is better to create a shortcut to a weather page on the web...

but you can remove it and see if your bothersome window disappears and add it back later if you wish

Cheers

Everything you told me helped!!!!!! Now how do I pay you?
Actually, you have already paid by accepting.

If you think I did a good job and would like to tip also, then there should be some option on your window. But I can't see it from this end...

Glad you are straightened out.
