Default Bloody wallpaper

I was looking to download a new wallpaper, found something I liked on google image search and right clicked/set as desktop backround. It asked me if I wanted to install an "active desktop" and I stupidly clicked yes. Now I have this stupid thing on the bottom right hand quarter of my desktop that I cant get rid of.

I change the wallpaper and the majority of the screen changes but the bit in the bottom right quarter stays there!

Doing my nut in!! Any ideas how I can get rid of it?

Well, not exactly sure, but it may be something like a webpage.

Right Click Desktop --> Properties --> Desktop --> Customize Desktop --> Web

Untick that, and remove anything there.

If not, also try looking round Control Panel and try and uninstall Active Desktop.
