    I have Windows XP installed with Microsoft 3D Windows XP Screensaver on my computer and it works fine - my problem is that I can't seem to KEEP it as my screensaver. It keeps reverting back to plain Windows XP Screensaver. Is there a way that I can "lock" in the screensaver so it won't keep changing back? Not a biggie - just an irritation - lol! Appreciate any input. Thanks.

    When does it revert to the default screen saver, when you log out or randomly?

    If when you log out, then you probably have a policy applied that does not save changes on logout. You are allowed to make changes during the session, but cannot make permanent changes.

    Sorry bout that - if I would give ALL the information, you might be able to help me - lol. It does it mainly when I change themes on my desktop - never when I just log out, that I remember. Is there a way to apply a screensaver to EACH theme? This changing themes thing is new to me - I am using TGT Soft for the theme changes, and am not fully acquainted with it yet, so part of the problem may lie there?

    I think you are on to something. I don't play with themes much anymore, just let me do my thing and I'm happy. It may vey well be your theme changing software. The more you play with it, the more you'll know about it.:D
