losing my active desktopLocked
Since about 4 MSIE6 upgrades ago, when either an explorer folder or internet explorer crashes I lose my active desktop. The normal black color turns white, my picture disappears and right clicking results in no menu. The only way to get my desktop back is to roll the registry back to a day when it was working. If it started normally earlier in the same day, that saves a lot of problems, but there isn’t always a same day backup available. What windows system files are responsible for the desktop and why do folder crashes destroy it?
