Enable the Active Desktop
  1. Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  2. To enable the Active Desktop, click the Web tab, click the "View my Active Desktop as a web page" check box to select it, and then click OK.
  3. To disable the Active Desktop, click the Web tab, click the "View my Active Desktop as a web page" check box to clear it, and then click OK.

Re: How to enable active desktop registry

To determine if Active Desktop is being displayed as a Web page, view the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\ {AEB6717E-7E19-11d0-97EE-00C04FD91972}\InProcserver32

If the default value is Shell32.dll, Active Desktop is installed. If the default value is Url.dll, Active Desktop is not installed.
