My PC goes to screen saver - but I can't seem to stop it.
When i go to Control Panel/ Display all i get is a choice of themes.
There are no tabs for screen saver
How can I turn the screen saver off?

TIA

Hi Alan,

You might want to download and run the following edit:

Screensaver tab missing (line 51, left column)

Hello Alan,

To disable the screensaver, you can manually edit the registry. Open the registry editor (Start/Run
REGEDIT) and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

On the right hand pane, delete the string named SCRNSAVE.EXE by selecting it and hitting delete on
the keyboard.
