Right click on the desktop, select properties on the menu, then the screensaver tab to view what options you have. Vista is a royal pain with regards to whether you are in the administrator mode. Right click on the task you wish to execute and select 'run as administrator' menu option.

    Do a full computer search for screensavers: type in *.scr. Also many functions in Vista require "elevation" which can be acheived by right clicking on the command your are accessing and choosing "Run as administrator.
     Sorry I misunderstood your problem which you later elaborated. I really was trying to help so if this helps please remove the Inappropriate rating. Steve

After start Vista locks itself.

You need to go into your Webshots screen saver and deactivate it and re-activate it.
1) Right click on the desktop -> Personalize -> Screen Saver.
2) If you are using Vista, uncheck the box which says 'On resume, display logon screen' or else in Windows XP this would be 'On resume, password protect'.

Computer screen saver

If you're looking for a folder in which to make a screen saver accessible,

drag ad drop the file [or unzip the file] into: Logical Drive, i.e.,

Local Disk C:\ WINDOWS.

Once you place the screen saver into the WINDOWS folder it'll be

accessible from START.....CONTROL PANEL.....DISPLAY or

Right Click an empty spot on your PROPERTIES

.....SCREEN SAVER.....then click the downward pointing arrow

under heading "screen saver" and it should appear in that list.

Vista uses a different technology for screen savers than in the past. The screensavers and backgrounds are active. Older screensaver software (I inferred from your post that you had a favorite that both of you used and not one from MS) will probably not work here.
