    What I am saying is I turned on the puter this amstepped away before going past log on and when I returned the screensaver had changed from the usual Windows XP logo it changes to the flying objects screensaver usually used AFTER some one logs in. and I went to the registry and found that the default of 900 for the log in screen saver was also changed from 900 to 300, and I haven't done anything like this I was reading about changing the login screensaver but didn't do it. (no one else has access to the registry I am administrator) so I am wondering what has happened I run spyware several different ones and they all come up ok as does Norton a v 2004 thnaks
