On the Windows XP operating system, the Active Desktop Recovery features help to restore the desktop of the OS when it crashes.
Like when you are browsing using the Internet Explorer and it suddenly crashes and restarts this Active Desktop Recovery screen helps to recover the open applications that were open before.
This error shows an Active Desktop Recovery page along with a Restore My Active Desktop button.
When this problem occurs the wallpaper won’t be showing up and the desktop will look weird.
But sometimes this feature can cause a problem on your Windows XP computer. So let’s learn how to disable it.
