Hey folks, I've just recently got a really cool screensaver for myself and I'm the only user on the computer atm.

For security reasons I've set a password for my account.

The new screensaver's working fine but once I log out of the account (to the login page) and after a while the default black Windows XP screensaver will come on.

I want to change it to the nice screensaver I got too.

Could someone please tell me how to do that?

Hi chinofeliz!

When you log out of the computer, there is no way to change the screensaver, because there is no user that is actually using the computer at this time, and that is why Windows uses the default boring screensaver. Instead of logging out of your account when your not using your computer, how about just setting a password for the screensaver?
