Hi,

Not sure if you are still checking or not but the last time i had my Screen saver page go missing it was because i was infected, i would run a full system sweep with Antivirus and antimalware *superantispyware got rid of mine

Hi Surfer99

Problem was solved.

I have been using Avast anti virus and SpyBot for years.

No problems at all from them.

Ready the superantispyware and it could be worth the change.

Are you using the FREE version?

Hi Philip

Navigated to the registry where suggested and it only had DisableTaskMgr and it appeared to be set to 0 already.

Is that the entry you meant?

EDIT

Sorry! Just woke up! I have the freebie installed. :)

Looks like u already found the answer!!!!


How to disable Display Properties Tabs for security purpose?

1) Run registery editor, for this, type regedit in Run dialog box from start menu.
2) Find following address: HKEY-CURRENT-USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ System
3)Create a new DWORD (value of 1) and :
3-1) to disable ScreenSaver tab name it NoDispScrSavPage
3-2) to disable Desktop tab name it NoDispBackgroundPage
3-3) to disable Themes tab name it NoThemesTab
3-4) to disable Setting tab name it NoDispSettingsPage
3-5) to dsable Appearance and Themes tabs name it NoDispAppearance
3-6) to disable Display Properties name it NoDispCpl
or Alternatively do this
1) In run type GPEDIT.MSC
2) search for desktop tab or folder... It will most probably will be in administrative templates and inside control panel. If u dont find it, then right click on administrative tools and select add/remove templates.
Click add and select system.adm and click open and click on close button. U will find few more options added. now u will find it... u can enable screensaver tab in that options

To enable set the value as 0 instead of 1. but he sure that u dont have virus like "antivirus 2008" u may also check

Hi Philip

Very happy with the program. Ran it the other day and it ran my Avast anti-virus and found about 5 viruses in the _restore files.
Plus one program in the MODEM folder that was a bad file.

Thanks for the info on the Properties TAB Setting.
That is fantastic info!!! :)
