The white screen was so difficult to look at that by evening I was having a severe headache. So the first thing today I did was to look for a solution online. But all the initial searches led me to registry editing methods of tackling the problem. Since none of them could be applied on our office system (registry editing being disabled), I had to look for an alternative.
After a couple more searches I stumbled upon the following simply simple solution 🙂
1. Open Notepad
2. Copy Paste the following code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001
strComputer = "."
Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
strKeyPath = "Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components"
strValue = "0"
ValueName = "DeskHtmlVersion"
objReg.SetDWORDValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath, ValueName, strValue
3. Save the file with the name “desktop_restore.vbs” (name is not important but only extension is important.)
4. double click the file to execute it and refresh the desktop. Voila… Your desktop wallpaper is back and shining. enjoy 🙂
