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.

I have a problem with screen saver on HP t5740e . How can I disable screen saver?

When you click with right mouse key on desktop, you can find 'Properties'. You have tab with 'Screen Saver' options. You must chose 'None'. Different OS has different options. I tell you for Windows XP, and I think other OS has similar solution.

Windows live quicktime control host failures

Since the quicktime would not update properly, you probably have a bad install of it, so you'll also have a bad uninstall. Restart your computer with the Windows disk in the CD. When it asks you to press a key to boot from CD, press the space bar (or any other key). Let the files set up, then when it asks you to press "R" to repair the system, press that, and let the system do a repair from the original disk. That should fix the system.

I am trying to SCAN a photo and save it to my SCREEN SAVER and at the same time enlarge it to fit the entire screen.

The photos in your computer can be used as screen savers (those files that pop up when you are idle).
1. Right click on your desktop and choose personalize.
2. Select Screen Saver
3. Select Photos
4. Click OK

All of the photos in your pictures folder will be your screen saver.

If what you want is this picture to be your background (the file that shows on your desktop all of the time)
1. Right click on your desktop
2. Select personalize
3. Select Desktop Background
4. Change the "Location" to Pictures from its setting of Windows Backgrounds
5. Select a picture
6.Click OK. It is automatically sized to your desktop.

Screen saver will not come on

It sounds like you have some program running in the background that is preventing your screen saver from showing. This could be a virus scan, or some other program you unknowingly downloaded from the internet....(spyware, etc). Check to make sure nothing is running in background and do a full scan for virus, spyware, etc.

Removing Screen Saver name from Screen saver list

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.

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.
