How to remove Active Desktop Recovery screen

  1. Go to Run and type regedit
  2. Now navigate to this path – HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components
  3. You would find a key named DeskHtmlVersion
  4. Right click the key and select Modify
  5. Under the label Base, select the radio button Decimal
  6. Change Value data to 0
  7. Click OK

This should do the trick. If the screen doesn’t go then try restarting your PC for the changes to take effect.
