Restore my Active Desktop Windows XP

Open up your registry: Start -> Run

*Warning: Be careful what you are doing when in the registry. It’s very easy to make your computer non-usable if you edit the wrong entry.

Type regedit

Expand the following:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components\

Double-click on DeskHtmlVersion, select the Decimal radio-button, and change the value from 272 to 0.

Then press OK.

Close out of Registry Editor, click in a blank area of your desktop, and press F5 to refresh the screen.

You should be back at your normal background/wallpaper.
