Resetting Active Desktop Recovery
Heres another way of fixing this issue:
Find the following registry entry:
And change the DesktopHtmlVersion value to 0
Then just right click your desktop and click refresh. The registry value will be reset back to it's default setting of 272 (decimal) so if Active Desktop Recovery comes back up in the future you have to repeat the process.
Alternatively, the registry value can be push out via Group Policy if this is something get often or on lots of computers. This will make the fix permanent saving you the trouble of having to sift through registries all the time.
