    Edited to add: Trying to fix my bad link. Sorry!

    If it's this line of screensavers, the support page says you may have to do some manual removal. Is this it?

    Sorry 'bout that bad link. What about your Desktop Properties in the area of screensaver - what does it say is active? If you open Task Manager, does it show anything in Applications? When I Googled for "imaginationx" this screensaver line is about all I saw - several pages of 'em. I can't say if there was anything "bad" throughout since I only checked a few of the hits.

    Have you looked in all the usual places for the command that starts this application (eg Start|Programs|Accessories|System Tools|System Information|Software Environment|StartUp Applications, and Cocuments and SettingsAll UsersStart MenuProgramsStartup). If you don't know the executable's name, see if you can identify the application via Task Manager, then select it and right-click with the mouse and choose 'Go to process', which will tell you what the file's real name is.

    Cheers
