strange background after screensaver ends

  pookie 14:38 21 Nov 2003


windows 2000 pro. a strange one for you - whenever a collegue puts in her password to come out of screensaver the background is the last web page she looked at(regardless of when she looked at it) as opposed to her default wallpaper or the last item she had open.

any ideas how to stop this?

It maybe a graphic resolution change effect... maybe your graphics board hasn't enough memory to cache both resolutions. What graphics board have you got?

ermm.. have you checked that the device is operating correctly in Device Manager?
Also try flushing the Internet Temp folder... IE.. Tools.. Internet Options.. Delete Temp files...the graphics file there, loaded as she has been surfing maybe being corrupted by the windows index file.

Hope that solves it.
