    Do you know how recently this problem began? If Win98 or ME it might be possible to restore a previous registry or system configuration.

    Try this for starters, run regedit and navigate to the following key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StreamMRU

    Right click on and delete the StreamMRU key.

    Also give us a copy/paste of a HijackThis Scanlog if that does not help.

    I would also recommend not using Active Desktop. Can you right click on the desktop and select Active Desktop and UNcheck "view as web page"?
