    I'm having problems with screensavers coming on, sometimes they come on and sometimes they don't any reason why? I'm running XP. I downloaded a new screensaver and I can preview it but when I set it to come on nothing happens. :oops:

    do all of your screensavers do that or just the ones you have added?

    I have checked about fifty web pages and can not find a problem quite like yours. Most of the problems are, not getting installed to the right folder or they contain a virus or they are loaded with spyware. But your exact problem I saw no mention of. But I will keep my eye out for a solution to your problem and when I find anything I will post it back here. Sorry I couldn't give you a real quick fix.

    That's ok, I can't figure it out either...I've scanned my computer for spyware, viruses etc etc. I have a new pc too.
