Active desktop recovery/Script error

run regedit

find this entry – HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components

change the key value – DeskHtmlVersion REG_DWORD 0x00000110(272) to decimal zero

Close regedit log off and log back on.

This has worked for all our XP clients

——————————————-

Heres a basic script to change the above registry setting

HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001
strComputer = “.”
Set objReg = GetObject(“winmgmts:\\” & strComputer & “\root\default:StdRegProv”)
strKeyPath = “Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components”
strValue = “0”
ValueName = “DeskHtmlVersion”
objReg.SetDWORDValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath, ValueName, strValue

copy this to notepad and save as activedesktop.vbs, then run the file, logoff then log back in again

hope this helps
