Hello.
I tried to reach the forum (or thread) which specifically deals with this matter, but I couldn't find it! Sorry!

I'd like to know the way to disable Active Desktop on my system. I have this other customizing program, Desktop X, which asks me to disable AD before running it.
In WINME, I know this could be done by right-clicking on the desktop, but now on WINXP I can't find it.
Thank you.

Start / Run / Regedit

Navigate to the following two registry locations and in each one create a dword value of:

NoActiveDesktop

and then double-click it and give it a value of 1


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
