I have no idea how he did it but on my dad's Vista laptop, there is a window at the top; you can only drag it down but not remove, minimize or maximize it as those options do not appear. I restarted but it's still there.

Here's a screenshot of what I mean:

strange window

How do I remove it? It used to be my laptop but I've never seen that when I used it.

The grey bar at the top is a user-created toolbar.

On the left end, there is a dotted vertical line.
Right-click the line and select "Close toolbar".
