tool palette - external references

I use this palette all the time and keep the icon displayed (in hidden form) on every session that I open.  I started AutoCad this morning and "external reference" icon was not displayed on the screen.  I went to the tools tab and selected the external reference palette.  A box was displayed that could not be hidden and all screen function were stopped until I closed this box.  I went to customize tool palettes and compared it to the properties palette and they looked the same.  I want to get my external reference palette function back to the way it was, any idea?
