unusual problem with active desktop

OK, i want to try and work with Active Desktop, but that's not my problem...


My problem is that I can't find active desktop! A while back I used some tweaking software to disable it (I hate accidently hitting it) and now I can't remember which software I used, or even if I still have it! Right now I have Tweak-XP, TweakUI(from powertoys), X-Setup, and miTweak-XP... I think I've had one or two others, but I;m not sure...


I tried the gpedit, and no luck, and I looked through all of those programs with no luck (I found the option in X-Setup, and that didn't work, and i got miTweak-XP too recently to be the culprit) and i'm getting somewhat frustrated!!!


Please, someone tell me how to fix this!!!

Simple fix

Run gpedit.msc
Navigate to:
- User Config
- Admin Templates
- Desktop
- Active Desktop
- Then enable those settings or disable, depending on what you want to do.

Good luck.

Well, if those settings are set to disabled or not configured, it won't work.

Glad you found it. Take care.

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
