Does your computer start up Windows? Are you saying "Restore Active Desktop" is the message that you see on your desktop?

or does all this happen before you load your desktop?

I've seen this Active Directory thing quite a bit over the last several months at work - and a scan usually reveals a malware infection is the cause. I'd suggest scanning with these free, online tools to check your system:

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have the Knack. **  If I haven't replied in 48 hours, please send me a message. My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.<p>If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.

Hope it helps
