1st off let me say Hello and I have been looking at the Active esktop Recovery script error thread for the past 3 weeks. but i cant seem to fix it. Looks like I'm the newest newb to have this problem I've followed all of these instructions to the letter and it works (for a few days) one symptom I have not heard anyone mention is how my systems seems to be working fine then all of a sudden it reboots thats when I get the active Desktop recovery screen the error message that the Original poster receives when I try to "Restore my active desktop." I have changed the DeskHtmlVersion to 0 I have deleted the desktop.htt file and restarted the computer it is usually fine for a few days then it comes right back. any help would be appreciated. EDIT also I have cleared all my temp internet files.
