I remember this only from Windows Millenium pc's as the last time I saw it. Usually, you reactivate it with the link that is displayed on the desktop. But Active Desktop is usually not used anyway, just set the desktop to a "normal" desktop with normal background, and you will never have this problem again. (Because I remember it sometimes just came back if you left it at Active Desktop)
