    Re: Windows XP always showing the default screen saver

    Windows XP has a default screen saver but at the same time every screen saver has its own standard settings. So we need to know what is actually troubling you.

    First try in this way...the default screen saver you are getting, for that check the standard behavior settings of it by selecting it and clicking on the 'Settings' button. May be this can fix your problem.

    If the issue persists, try as follows:-

    > Click Start -> Run -> type 'regedit' in the text box to get the Registry Editor file.

    > Open Registry Editor and under 'My Computer', double click on the folder "HKEY_USERS" -> select ".DEFAULT" -> Control Panel -> Desktop.

    > Now in RHS, find the name "ScreenSaveActive". Change its value to "0" in the window that appears by double clicking on it.

    Hope this helps...

    Windows XP always showing the default screen saver

    When I turned ON the Windows XP, I saw the screen saver which is not the one I had set. I have set other one now and when I turned it ON again, it gave me the default screen saver, but not the latest one which I have set. Please, help me in this problem.
