    think problem was caused by a screen saver called "eye of the storm" which i've not been able to uninstall?

    i'm a bit thick and could find no way to do it!
    certainly there is no uninstall button with it.

    Re: screen saver wont work

    Is it listed in the "Start up" group, if so you can delete the entry and it will not start on boot up.
    Or, you can turn if off using "MSConfig".

    not in the start up group, can only find it listed on the screen saver list.
    what's MSconfig?
