screensaver and themes option no longer shown ???

  AB's 14:04 20 Dec 2006

when opening properties on the desktop i can no longer see the themes and screen saver options, if i create a new user account they appear in that account. its not an option to use that account however because of the stuff i already have installed that does not appear in the new account. does anyone know of the registry edit to bring the options back.

Thanx in advance

Start menu/run,type

press return

locate HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Look for a value called Screensavetimeout and adjust it if necessary, if you cant see it, select Edit, New/String Value, name the new value ScreenSaveTimeOut
Quit Regedit and go back to your screensaver options in Control Panel, you should be able to adjust the value now.
