I have Windows XP and 5 users on my computer. On only one of the users whenever the screensaver kicks in and you go to reactivated the screen we get a "Key Expired - Your temporary key has expired. If you believe this message is in error, please contact the program's author." At this point I have to hit control/alt/del to continue. Is there anyway to eliminate this error?

I've gone through the malware process and racenutalways referred me here.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have a shareware version of a screensaver that this person is using?

Are the other users logging off or just switching users?

Is this XP Home?

It is XP home addition. The other users are not logging off or switching users. They simply stop using the computer and the screensaver kicks in and when you go to use the computer again you get this message.

XP Home has a 5 user limit, it seems like something is tripping it off.
