    Lost my Desktop settings

    I can only afford Dial-Up Internet, so when the automatic Windows Updates
    come around every month, I have problems. Besides taking forever, I cannot
    shut down my computer correctly (can't access "Stand-by", "Hibernation", or
    "Shut Down"). If I click "Start" and "Shut Down", I get the hourglass and
    the computer locks up. All I can do is turn off the power switch. I have
    hated doing this, but it's always come back up again all right before. This
    time I have lost my active Desktop. I get the following Error Message:
    ===================================================
    Internet Explorer Script Error

    An error has occurred in the script on this page.

    Line: 65
    Char: 1
    Error: Object doesn't support this action
    Code: 0
    URL: file://C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/sue%20Gilliland/Application
    %20Data/Microsoft/Internet%20Explorer/Desktop.htt

    Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

    Yes No
    ====================================================
    I'm a "computer idiot". Could anyone help me with this? Thanks!

    RE: Lost my Desktop settings

    Try these:
    Start explorer. Tools menu > Folder Options > View tab, tick Show Hidden
    files and folders
    Move to C:/Documents and Settings/sue Gilliland/Application
    Data/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/

    Select Desktop.htt and delete or rename it to Desktop.htt.old
    Close Explorer
    Right click on the desktop and choose Refresh. Desktop,htt will be recreated.
    If not yet fixed try changing your screen resolution back and forth or your
    Desktop Wallpaper.
