i can't seem to get rid of the pesky folder options widow (like the options that are on the left of a window when you open a folder) on my desktop, i turned my PC on the other day and it appeared, i can remove it from the folder window through view/folder options/use windows classic view but i can't find away to remove it from my desktop,... also i have just purchased spiderman the movie game but when i try to run it it says my video card must be TNL capable does any one know what this means and if i can find out what my video card (built in) is capable off.

Thanks.

Re TNL

From the ATI site:

In some instances, when attempting to launch Spider-Man: The Movie, the game will display the warning message:

"You must have a TNL capable 3D card to play this game."

Spider-Man: The Movie requires a 3D graphics card that fully supports Hardware Transformation and Lighting (T&L).

With the exception of RADEON VE and RADEON 7000, all RADEON series products (RADEON, RADEON 7200, etc.) support this feature.

Products based on the RADEON VE/RADEON 7000 or earlier ATI graphics chipsets, such as the RAGE 128 PRO or RAGE 128, do not support Hardware T&L and can not be used with this game.

If you are using a graphics card which supports Hardware T&L, the warning message may occur for the following reasons:

Desktop Color Depth is set too low
Graphics hardware acceleration slider is not set to full
