Having problem installing the Flash player again

Somehow you have to go over this again on each new release

This time Flash 10, I cannot locate the msi as I did with Flash 9. I finally get it worked with the Adobe's Knowledge Base:


It said the problem related to "incorrect permissions in the registry"

The procedure require SubInACL from Windows Resource Kit, onec it is installed make sure you add "C:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\" to PATH; otherwise, the script will not run effectively

I hope this fix the problem once for all

Fix: Active desktop recovery with IE7

Having a Active desktop recovery popup suddenly is very annoying, in particular it forces your desktop background turn completely white that hurt my eyes. Different fixes were found but only the following worked for me(as System Admin. disable me from disable the active desktop)

Update the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\SafeMode\Components
Change the value of DeskHtmlVersion to zero instead of decimal 272.

Than logoff and login again
