    I put this up yesterday, but it went into subscriptions? anyway hope I'm doing right by posting it again!

    I'm running Win XP on an Athlon 1.9 GHz Comp with 1 Gb of ram.

    The screensaver does nor kick in after any preset time.
    It will pre-view OK
    I cannot see any prog running in the background that could cause this problem.
    Running progs are 1)V. Killer 2) Firewall 3) cookie and ad blockers
    It also happens if I start with a clean boot (ie only services etc running)

    Any ideas welcome!
