I just recently had to reload Windows 7 64 bit. At first the screen saver worked. Now, after downloading all the updates it won't work.How can I remedy the situation?

What do you mean 'wont work'. Can you be more specific? Also please try and run a quick SFC in the step listed below and post back with the results.  
STEP ONE: SFC Run
  • I'd like you to start a System File Check (SFC). This is a built in system tool that Microsoft has for checking the current file systems out and making any necessary repairs. To do this, you will need to open up an Elevated Command Prompt, which you can do by following these easy steps:
  • Open your Start Menu
  • Select All Programs
  • Then select Accessories
  • 'Right Click' on Command Prompt
  • Select Run as administrator from the Context Menu
Now you should see the Command Prompt window open at this time, which I need you to type the exact text found below in the code box hitting your 'ENTER' key after you finish typing it.
SFC /SCANNOW > "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\SFC Results.txt"
This may take a while, so please try not to interrupt it or use the PC as much as possible while it runs. Once it is done, it will go back to the original line of text you saw. At that point, I need you to look on your desktop for the text file named "SFC Results.txt". Please copy and paste that into another reply, in which then we can review.

I found out that it was my wireless mouse. I unplugged the receiver and it worked. So I tried a different one with a mini receiver and all is ok now. Thank you.
