Turn off screen saver

My computer is set up to turn on the screen saver automatically after 15 minutes and then to require password to start again. This option is locked in the setup, in my old XP could it be turned off in the registry by turning off a screensaver is secured option. Is there any simalar option in windows 7 ?

Regards
