    so is the screen saver causing a problem? can you select any other screen savers or it just hidden or you can select it but it doesnt work after the time you chose.

    yeah just use another one, basicaly the essential files for the screen saver is missing they're saved in the windows folder "system 32" I wouldnt go to modify that. besides a screen saver has no purpose ..it actualy slows background processes

Tip

Applying the settings to the logon desktop


Next, you need to apply the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop / Welcome Screen (Technically, HKEY_USERS\.Default registry key), so that the Screensaver is invoked when no user is logged on. Copying all the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop (or Welcome Screen) manually is a tough task. Use Tweak UI instead.
Download and install TweakUI.
Launch TweakUI and click Logon, click Settings.
Select Screensaver from the list box and choose Copy Now
The Screensaver settings are applied to the Logon Desktop
Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
Allow few minutes at the Logon screen, to test if the Screensaver is working properly. The Screensaver should launch after the timeout. It will look as if the Company Logo moves around.
Additional Tip
The User interface / slider allows the minimum value for picture change interval to 6 seconds only. To reduce the change interval to less than 6 seconds, alter the registry value named ChangeInterval (Set decimal value 1000 for 1 Second, and so forth) in this key:
HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow
For Current user profile, make the change here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow

With no logon wallpaper set, Windows displays a pre-defined color for the logon desktop. ( If you have enabled Welcome Screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice to see the logon screen background color. ) To change the logon background color to that of your choice, you need to alter the registry:
Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT and press Enter
Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors
Backup the registry key by exporting to a REG file
In the right pane, double-click Background
In the Edit String dialog box, type the Color code in R G B format and then click OK.
Example: Type 0 0 0 if you want to see a Black background. You can choose any combination from 0-255
Points to ponder
If the logon Wallpaper is set, the background Color may not be visible. So, you must reset the Wallpaper value to a blank string in this key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
If the Background value is set under the following Winlogon registry key, the above setting is ignored. In other words, the Winlogon\Background value takes precedence over the .DEFAULT..\Background value.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Lost my Outlook Express. exe (using Windows XP). How can I download this and can I get all my "saved" folders on my previous account?


Hope you get lucky with this:

Go into your Control Panel and open Folder Options, under the View tab checkmark "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files [Recommended]", click Apply/OK. Now go into Windows Explorer and go to C:\Windows\System32\dllcache folder and open it. There should be a copy of msimn.exe there. You can right click it, choose Copy then paste it into the C:\Programs\Outlook Express folder.

if nothing happens then, For futher and any other technical troubleshooting contact, virenderhasanaccount@hotmail.com

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.
