Windows 98; Active Desktop error
For some reason, I cannot use ActiveDesktop, which includes all web based content in Windows 98; this includes features such as WebTV, Web-bases content on the desktop, and any Web based content in window boxes. (i.e. The pie chart that displays when you click on a drive in My Computer, or the thumbnail of a selected image). Now without this I don't have any of these features.
I don't know how I lost it, and it has always worked before, but now whenever I try to enable it, it gives me a message that says "Internet Explorer cannot find the Active Desktop HTML file. This file is needed for your Active Desktop. To turn off Active Desktop, click OK. [OK]"
Does anyone know why it does this and what I can do to get my ActiveDesktop back?
Under "System Tools" go to 'System Information' and run " System Files Checker" and reistall any missing files from your Windows CD. Might just solve your problem
Active desktop is part of IE 4.0
So if you have the cd then reinstall and should replace the missing files.
Already tried that Pickel, didn't work. No missing files. (yeah right, whatever!)
I do not have an IE install CD
*bumpity-bump* Has anyone ever had this problem before?
Maybe if you went to the "add-remove programs" and selected the repair IE program that might fix it.
