RE: How to Restore Active Desktop?



Dear Nass,

This is the URL of the problem:

file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/Administrator/Application%20Data/Microsoft/Internet%20Explorer/Desktop.htt

I have the latest version of Trent Micro, so I don't think I have a virus.

I am restarting the computer now, to see if anything has changed.

Could a file be corrupted at that URL?

Thank you for your help.

Hi,

My computer with Windows XP froze and when I restarted it, I can not get the
White Desktop screen to go away. This had happened to me before, but I could
always restore the Desktop, by clicking on the relevant button on the white
screen. All my icons are in place. This is the message I get:

An error has occerred in the script on this page

Line 65
Char 1
Code 0

Any advice?

John
