  1. Hello, I have setup widows screensaver to none and still when using a diffeent account the screensaver comes up. I already tried this registry change" Hkey Current User>Control Panel>Desktop select ScreenSaverActive value to "0". This is not working for me.
    Any idead what else can I change to stop it.
    Thanks!

    The screensaver setting is user-specifc. Also, as you can see from the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER, it applies only to the current user.
