Fix Active Desktop Recovery mode

Just for shits and giggles, Active Desktop in Windows XP occasionally decides to enter 'recovery mode', replacing the desktop background with a useless message and a button that doesn't work.

To fix, set DWORD DeskHtmlVersion to 0:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components\

Then, right-click on a blank area of the desktop and hit Refresh (or log out and back in).

Yay middo.
