It sounds like you had some web content that is no longer available as part of your active desktop. I copied the instructions for you on how to change it right out of windows help file. Good luck!

To add Web content to your desktop

  1. Right-click a blank area on the desktop, and then click Properties.
  2. On the Desktop tab, click Customize Desktop.
  3. On the Web tab, click New, and then follow the instructions on your screen.
You must be connected to the Internet to add active Web content to your desktop.
  • To browse Microsoft's Desktop Gallery Web site, in the New Desktop Item Wizard, click Visit Gallery. The New Desktop Item Wizard opens when you click New on the Web tab.
  • To select a different Web site, type the Web site address, or click Browse to locate it.

I can't get past the activation issue.

What software are you trying to install & activate?
What error-messages are you getting?
Are you using the set of "System Restore" CD/DVD disks that were originally provided with the computer?
Have you contacted the manufacturer of your device, and ordered a replacement-set of "System Restore" disks?

I am facing problem in my windows XP getting error

Ok at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems. - This is all I can think of to do.

Will not boot, error message


Im sorry to hear about your luck. Basically this error message is letting you know that one of your important windows system files is corrupt or missing.

Problem is every solution requires you to use a cd. Does the PC have USB drives ?

Post-Restore Problems

Undo the restoration. This will solve your issue. The problems you are facing are due to the false restoration date. The restored date is not good.

White box on desktop which I cannot remove

I beleive some more explanation is required on this. When do you face an issue like this, when you are online or even offline? For online issues we will be working with cookies but rt now suggestions for offline issue is Do you have any programs running in the background such as anti-virus or Norton System Doctor? If so try disabling them and see what happens.

You could try restoring your registry to a time before the problem started if it's been only a few days or so. Keep pressing F8 at startup. When the menu pops up select the option for command prompt only. Or restart in ms-dos mode. When you're at the prompt type scanreg /restore (there's a space between the g and /) and pick a date on the list that predates the problem.
