I tried that screensaver trick a few years ago in XP. I tried it again today in 7. It crapped out my system the same way both times, but today I did not have to reboot.

Reminds me of Crocodile Dundee turning on the TV and seeing "I Love Lucy" and saying, "Yeah, that's what I saw..."

That's because dual screen is a different code..

LOL!

Plugged in another monitor just to try this, its now deffo this one, "mystify.scr /p65802".. tried and tested.

the code above that didn't work was found by me creating an app that sent the command-line to the titlebar on it when it ran. I then renamed the app to .scr and ran it from the app you linked to to get the codes it was sending lol!
The app must detect how many monitors and then sends different codes depending.

Hey guys, For some reason my windows 7 won't start up the screen saver. It'll work maybe right after I reboot my computer but after that it refuses to work. I have it setup so once the screen saver starts it takes me back to where I need to type my password but it refuses to do that. I use a...
