Windows 7: A particular screensaver no longer works.

23 Aug 2017   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
A particular screensaver no longer works.

I have made a few screensavers using Axialis' software. A day or two ago the screensaver which I use as the default didn't appear after the set time.

Furthermore, I can't start it by clicking on it in the system32 folder. When I do that a message opens up telling me that "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

Clicking on it in the Screensaver Settings window it doesn't work either.

Clicking on any other screensaver in system32, including those I made myself, starts that saver.

I have a copy of it in a desktop folder and it works when I click on that.

Why has the system started to tell me I don't have permissions for this one?
