Question about Dell Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I am using an IBM R52 laptop; whenever I start the computer, I get the "warning" screen that the active desktop has to be restored. I have tried to delete the Desktop.htt file but that did not seem to help. When I open Internet Explorer, it opens to a default web page - I set that to the blank page and it seems to work when I reopen IE (goes to the blank page) but then when I reboot, I get the error message; if I leave IE on the default web page, the active desktop recovery warning page does not appear. Any thoughts on how I can fix that? Installed object desktop and windowblinds and then wham......restore my active desktop, script error. Have to use the task manager to run anything and to shut down. Task bar and start menu flash on and off every 10 seconds. Am currently using "Hijack this" to hopefully help with the problem ..so far not fixing it. Have run registry scans, adware, etc. Have right clicked on desktop.....no use. Have done system restore....no help. Don't know whether I have a virus or what??? Pleeeeeese help if you can. Thanks to all.
