“RESTORE MY DESKTOP” error in Windows XP System

“RESTORE MY DESKTOP” error in Windows XP System

Sometimes when working in Windows XP we may come with this Problem. A button will be showed in the desktop with a Text “Restore My Desktop”. On Clicking the button you will get the script error message




For this we need to do some change in the Registry.

Note: Extra Care should be taken while working with Registry.

Type “regedit” in the RUN dialog box.

Search for the following Key

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

Change the Keyvalue of the right side of the pane as follows

DeskHtmlVersion REG_DWORD 0x00000110(272) to decimal zero

Close Regedit and logoff the system and log on.



  1. thank you… great help

  2. Yes, this did the job for me too! I am very grateful. It was the ONLY answer in Google when I copied/pasted the error message. You are a star!

  3. I’m having the exact problem. Because of this I could not connect to the internet. I almost reinstalled my Windows XP. Thank u so much, it’s working.
