    There is a registry key called something like NODESKTOPSHOW under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer in Win2K. Value 1 enables, & 0 disables the desktop tab in display properties.
    Had a quick look in regedit (WinXP), but couldn't locate any such key (then again mine hasn't been disabled.)
    If you can't find it, & you back up your registry 1st, it couldn't hurt to try creating the key yourself (think it's a DWORD) and set the value to 0. You'll need admin privileges to do this.
    Maybe someone else could step in here and throw some light on where it lives now?:confused:

    If it is a policy setting, this one would have the shown effect

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ System
    DWORD: NoDispBackgroundPage = 1

    Which program did you uninstall?

    So you don't have this key at the moment? Check the same location but not in HKEY_CURRENT_USER but in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
