Hello,

This is only for XP and 2000. Also, try to change your desktop background before you use this information. The option to change the background is on the same screen as the screensaver settings. The tab says background instead of screensaver.

Download cleandesktop (http://thespykiller.co.uk/downloads/cleandesktop.exe)and save to your desktop. (right click save as)
Double-click on the cleandesktop.exe it will automatically extract to c:\desktopclean
Then it will automatically run the cleandesktop.vbs script.
It will then kill explorer. You will temporarily lose your taskbar and desktop .
It will then repair the registry entries returning your normal desktop and context menu functions.
It will then restart explorer. Your desktop will be shown again once you have performed the cleanup

Each of the other users on the system needs to be signed in to clean up their desktop and regain the right click.
Another vbs is included to do this. It is named "other profiles regfix.vbs".
Have each user sign in and run other profiles regfix.vbs.
Go to start > run and type: c:\desktopclean press enter double click on other profiles regfix.vbs
Explorer will be ended and that user's active desktop registry entries will be repaired.
Explorer will be restarted. To restore the desktop to whatever picture you normally have, right-click on a blank part of your desktop, select properties > desktop tab & select your preferred picture.
Press apply & then ok to exit and then press f5. (to refresh) you will need to do this step for every user account.

Thanks

How to customize Screensaver in Windows 10
RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance
There were times when computer monitors used to suffer from image burn-in issues caused by showing the same image for a long period of time and people used to install a screen saver to avoid the issue. The computer screens today no longer face the burn-in issues, but people still use the screen saver on their computer systems for fun's sake. Windows 10 comes with a six built-in screensavers. Let us see how you can customize screensavers in Windows 10.
Read: Are Screensavers necessary and still needed.
Screensaver Settings in Windows 10 You can get to your screen saver settings directly by typing 'Screen Saver' in the taskbar search box in the lower left corner of your system. Click on 'Change Screen Saver' and it will take you the Screen Saver settings right away where you can adjust the settings according to your own preferences.
Alternatively, right-click on your Windows 10 desktop, and select Personalize to open Personalization settings. Next click on Lock screen in the left pane.

Scroll down the Lock Screen settings and click on Screen Saver Settings. The following window will open. Here you can adjust the settings according to your preferences.

By default, Windows 10 offers the following six screensavers - 3D Text, Blank, Bubbles, Mystify, Photos and Ribbons - nothing new here. Select the screensaver from the drop-down menu and change its defaults Settings, if any are available.
For instance, the 3D Text screensaver lets you customize the text as well as a few other options.

The Photos screensaver lets you display your favorite photos as a screen saver.

Once you are done, click on save and exit.

Create Screen Saver Settings Shortcut

If you access the screensaver settings frequently, you can create its desktop shortcut as follows: However, it is easy to change the settings but if you change your screen saver often, it would be better to create a Screen Saver Settings shortcut on your desktop.
To create the shortcut, you have to right-click on your desktop and click on New > Shortcut.
Type control desk.cpl,,@screensaver in the location space in the wizard.
Click Next and give a name to your shortcut. Click Next and you are done. Give it a suitable icon of your choice.
Use this shortcut to change or adjust your screen saver settings whenever you want, quickly.
You can also create a shortcut to launch or change Screensaver state for a specific screensaver.

To set up your screensaver, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Choose the Screen Saver tab. In the drop down menu for Screen saver, make sure something is selected instead of (None). Next click the Preview and it will give you a glimpse of what the screensaver you chose will look like. Move the mouse to get out of it and select apply if you like that one or choose a different one.
