Hello Riptorn,

If you mean the On resume, display logon screen box, then you might see if using one or more of the options in the tutorial below may be able to disable it so it will no longer be checked anymore.

Screen Saver Password Protection -Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Riptorn,

You could use the REG download in step three in OPTION TWO at the link above to also do this. :)

Sorry to hear that.

As a test, create a new administrator account to see if your screen saver settings work properly in it.
