    Yet another W2K problem. This time it's with the screensaver tab in display properties. Specifically, it's missing. At work I install Novell client and some basic software to be used over the network. During the install, the screensaver tab disappears. I've tried looking at the novell site, no luck. Tried the MS site, no luck. Looked through all our network settings, no luck so far.

    What I really need is the registry key(s) that affect the screensaver.

    Also look under default user and local machine.

    You should see a value labeled NoDispScrSavPag. If you don't then it might be coming from a system policy.

    If the value is there, you can safely delete NoDispScrSavPag. It is an optional value.

    Greetings Brooks,

    Thank you. That indeed is the problem. Now I just need to hunt down at which point this reg edit is being inserted. :rolleyes:
