Under Windows XP1 and XP2 screensavers do not run

Hi all,

According to Microsoft at

If you have a screensaver there is a problem running it.

I have searched the net and found a number of references to it but no suggested fix.

Does anyone know better?

I would love to put back "Winter" for the Xmas period!

Thanks in advance,

It says "The screen saver does not start if the Windows Security dialog box is open in Windows XP"

So i would have thought the simple fix would be to *close* the dialog box refered to.

Hi Dorsai,

Put simply, I saw that but I don't know how!

Have you please?
