Active Desktop Recovery - Script Error


I'm having a script error on the active desktop recovery screen. After rebooting, the desktop goes to the white Active Desktop Recovery Screen. When I click on Recover Active Desktop, it brings up a script error:

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

The file does not exist on the computer. I've run regular anti-virus programs on it and still nothing has fixed the problem. Could somebody tell me what I can do to get rid of this script error and recover my active desktop. Thanks.

:Turp:

Hi, Turp! Welcome to Windows BBS!

That Desktop.htt file is apparently a hidden file. That's probably why you can't find it.

Please read the information in the following link for a possible solution.
Even though the information on that page refers to Windows 98 and Internet Explorer 5.5, I suspect a similar course of action might apply in your case.

Please let us know whether it works or not.
