Windows 7: bubbles screen saver problem

Right-click the theme you want to save, and give it a name and apply it. Then right-click the unsaved one and hit Delete. Maybe that'll work.
Another thing to try is to go to C:\windows\system32 and locate Bubbles.scr and Bubbles.scr.mui and move both out of the System32 folder but don't delete them. That should keep it from running.
Or you could simply rename them such as Bubbles.scr.bak and Bubbles.scr.mui.bak which should also stop it.

No thanks beman36 , the bubbles came back after some windows updates, and now am not allowed to rename them... (Bubbles.scr.BAK), not allowed to edit permissions to full control,and just recently the wallpaper turnned black, i cannot change the black wallpaper, should also mention that the theme is showing the wallpapers that should be displayed and desktop background is not set to solid colors... i may also mention that everything works fine on guest account (screensaver can be disabled wallpaper and theme work properly)
