I had to cold reboot my Windows XP and now the desktop background is all white with a big ecalamation mark. When I click the 'Restore my Active Desktop' button, I get a script error.
There's a tip to delete the desktop.htt file under C:\Documents and Settings[username]\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer and relog in. I did that. But still same problem and that file gets recreated.
Then in the display applet, the backround options in the Desktop tab are all greyed out so I can't change the background.
Any more ideas?
