"zooming"type useless and unwanted toolbar

I just installed ubuntu. I installed Synaptics package manager and installed xfce. I installed a BUNCH of xfce packages. That was probably a mistake. Now I have this toolbar on the right of my desktop with several icons. Only none of the icons (including the firefox one) do a thing. It doesn't matter if I left click, right click or double click. Nothing happens. And nothing happens when I do any of those clicks on the toolbar itself. I can't seem to find any program that has anything to do with it. It's NOT one of the panels. I just want to get rid of it. Anyone have any ideas?

Open a terminal and type
top -bn1
Which will give you a list of running prosesses, then use kill to get rid of it if it respawns or comes back at boot have a look at the startup and session managers, you bshould be able to remove it permantly from there.

Welcome to the forum

Did you want to run the xfce desktop? If so, it should give you that option at boot. If not, you can try opening Synaptic and entering "xfce" in the search bar and uninstalling every package you installed that's related to xfce.

Thanks. I ran the code and started killing processes that looked like they might be toolbars. I managed to kill the two panels I wanted - (but got them back with startup and sessions)-and then saw "warlock toolbar" in startup and sessions, disabled it and now that thing is gone. There's no program I can find for configuring it. Kind of a neat looking toolbar. Too bad it does nothing. I kind of like that mac like zooming icon look.

It is probably wbar you are talking about, the configuration file is ~/.wbar for you to edit.
