    check

    Navigate to

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

    If there is a DWoRD Value such "NoDispScrSavPage" with a data value of 1 this will disable the screen saver tab. Change the value to 0 or delete it to
    see the tab again.
    olso uninstall the display adapter and reinstall it
    check if youre signed in as an administrator on xp

    They are missing and I'm running XP with an Intel Chipset. I don't think it has anything to do with my graphics. I believe it could be the result of a registry or file change; quite possibly the result of a virus which has been removed.
