active desktop in win xp

the other day I was trying to get the ebay icon from the msn home page onto my desktop, and it went horribly wrong. I clicked on the ebay icon on the msn hope page, copied it and then went to paste it onto my desktop. There was some mention of active desktop and I proceeded. I didn;t get the icon but a white square which resides top left corner of my desktop. i have tried everthing to get rid of it but to no avail, Has anyone got any suggestions on removing it please?

Open the Control Panel.
Open Display Properties.
Click the Desktop tab.
Click the Customize Desktop button.
Click the Web tab in the Desktop Items window.
If you wish to enable the Active Desktop, check "My Current Home Page". Add your current home page into your desktop or click New to add another web page and/or other Active Desktop features. To update the content, click the Synchronize button.
