Windows 7: Problem with the screen saver and wallpaper

Problem with the screen saver and wallpaper

Hello,

I bought a Acer netbook with Win 7 starter and then upgrade to Home Premium. Problem is I can not get the screen saver to work. Plus I can't change the wallpaper...

Before the upgrade there was a program on the netbook called Oceanis. I removed the program Oceanis.

After the upgrade I reinstalled Oceanis with no luck...

Hello Rickers, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In Windows 7 Home Premium, you do not need to install the Oceanis program. It's only for Windows 7 Starter and Home Basic editions instead.

Home Premium comes with the personalization feature included.

Desktop Background - Change

Screen Saver - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks... I removed Oceanis then did a reboot.

I still cannot activate the screen saver and can not change the desktop background....

Are you sure that you have Home Premium and not Home Basic installed?

At the beginning of boot up it displays Windows 7 Home Premium...Plus the MS upgrade box is Win 7 Home Premium...

Maybe I should try to reinstall the upgrade...???

Before trying that, see if the system file checker can find and fix any corruption,


SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Rickers,

A product key is your license. It would be either a full or upgrade key.
