Windows 7: Help with SCREEN SAVER Needed

Welcome to Seven Forums.

What screensaver is it? The link you added refers to this forum. And what do you mean with locked out?
And what way did you try to install it? Are you administrator on your PC?

It would also be nice if you provided us more information on your PC/Laptop. Here's how.


Go to your "User CP" (3rd item in the top menu bar)

In the left-hand column, under Your Profile, Edit System Spec.

Use Speccy - System Information - Free Download
and/or SIW to gather info for filling in the blanks.

"system manufacturer” block : please add if it is a Desktop or Laptop

Provide full windows version info, such as provided by Speccy:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader, Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor

Scroll down and click on the SAVE CHANGES button.

That way we can help you better and faster.

I scanned the file with my AVG Anti-Virus - No Problems

After installation, it implements a suspicious file in your registry and Operating System directory.
If you have an antivirus, it is possible that it deleted these virus files automatically.


If you ever download screensavers again - make sure it's a .scr file. If it's not, 90% it's a virus injector.
You can only trust .exe files if they come from a trusted download website (like CNET.COM, softpedia, etc.)
This is an example:

Do a computer scan with your anti-virus if you can. It will make sure the dangerous files are removed.

As I said, immediately after I installed it, it showed op as a virus (AVG's resident shield scans every new file on your computer).
I did'nt even got to my control panel for trying this one.

Are you saying that NONE of your screensavers is working? Because that would be another thing talk about.
