    I have windows xp, I turned on my computer one day and the screen saver was gone replaced by one that is bugs crossing the screen. I downloaded AVG and it looks like I had a virus, I got it cleaned up but now my screen savers are gone with the exception of the bugs. I used my pictures as my screen saver and they are still there but can not figure out how to get them back as my screen saver, the screen saver tab is just gone.
    Any help would be great the bugs are creeping me out.

    aurspruch, Go to the link below and scroll down to line 285 (right column) and click on "Restore All Display Tabs" to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.
