    Everytime my screen saver tries to kick in, this message appears
    "Photos Screen Saver Has Stopped Working"
    Vista then gets me to send an error report to microsoft.
    It's been working for the last week OK.
    Does anyone know what causes this?

    I think it has to do with codecs. Load divX and see how that goes.

    Same problem here. MS offers debug option in a pop up thenanother one pops up and advises you to go to Visual Studio and use tools/options debugging Just in Time. All very well but finding Visual Studio on Windows explorer reveals that there is no Application there only folders. Very useful!!
    Anyone has any ideas?

    I do think it is related to a codec problem; once I uninstalled a Vista codec bundle it has been working properly. I just haven't found any Vista codec bundles that don't effect photoscreen saver.
