    go to run and type in cmd then hit enter. In the black box type chkdsk /r and answer yes to the question. Shutdown and reboot so check disk can run. Do this so we know you don't have file corruption which is effecting your screen saver file.

    You have defragged your drive at some point in recent history, correct?

    Hiya GNOMEX.

    The only thing you can do is contact the supplier that gave you the software to run the screensaver.

    If the software is legit and there is a known issue you will be given an update.

    It all depends on where you got the software for the screensaver..
