Hi, I recently had a Vcodec Trojan, and thankfully got it removed from the geekstogo malware help section. However, there does seem to be one side-effect. I cannot turn on my screen savers. I can't even manipulate the any part of the screen saver area.

When I bring up the Display Properties window, I can go to the screen saver tab. I can manipulate the Power settings below the screen saver area, but I can do nothing in the screen saver area. Like I said, the area is inactive, you know like when windows doesn't let you manipulate something. Any ideas? Here's the reference to the malware removal, maybe I did something in there or it might have clues. Thanks
