(Solved) - Active Desktop Recovery(7 posts)
Hi have posted the fix I have read about
To fix it go Start Run, type and enter regedit
Go to this key:
Change the value of DeskHtmlVersion to zero instead of decimal 27
Here is a picture of my registry for that key. you can see it here. http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/JkEiLifoRsdzJPNFauC5iw?feat=directlink
Please let us know how you get along
Change registry key to 0 instead 272 look like solve my problem
but the problem appear again on the next boot, so i have to change DeskHtmlVersion key again
again and again everytime my computer run.
So i created small program to set DeskHtmlVersion to Zero Decimal and you must make it run
every time my computer start and make DeskHtmlVersion keep to Zero Value.
I upload this file to rapidshare so download it guys…

1. Download and extrak the arcive, you will see DeskHtmlVersionToZero.exe and you have to make
it to run on every time computer start, so follow next step.
2. Copy DeskHtmlVersionToZero.exe to C:\WINDOWS\system32\
3. Type regedit on StartMenu > RUN
4. Goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
5. Create String Key, give it name DeskHtmlVersionToZero
6. Fill The Value with C:\WINDOWS\system32\DeskHtmlVersionToZero.exe
7. Restart Computer.
8. To Check it, type msconfig on StartMenu > RUN, goto startup tab, you will see
DeskHtmlVersionToZero on your startup program.
9. And Check that Your DeskHtmlVersion Keep in Zero Value.

Got a good one for y'all. Tried the above several times with complete success. However, Murphy has struck and now I have this interesting scenario. My screen is divided into two parts: the left side of the screen is part of my wallpaper bitmap (the right hand portion) and the right side is a simple white screen. All respond to mouse clicks, etc. The most interesting part is that there is a grab line between the image and the white portion allowing me to "re-size" the bitmap almost to full screen - I end up with a white bar about 1/10th the full screen size on the right side. This happens every time I boot and the re-sizing does not stick. Even more fun, this also has something to do with whether or not one decides to show desktop icons. In the past, opting to do so "fixed" the bitmap but I like a clean desktop (I use quick launch) so having this half and half screen is unacceptable. Haven't seen this anywhere else, some advice would be appreciated.
NEVER MIND! (SOLVED). It turns out that the "white bar" is actually the active desktop itself. At the top there is a drop down menu of which one of the selections is "Cover Desktop". Selected that and all was good again!
