    Windows 7 screensaver does not work after iTunes installed


    I recently updated iTunes on my Windows 7 computer. It installed several additional programs. I followed all directions and uninstalled iTunes and the additional programs. My screensaver will not engage now. It works on preview but will not start at any other time.

    Suggestions? Appreciate it.

    That is quite odd.

    Try changing the screensaver to a different one as a test, what happens?

    You have tried restarting correct?



    Please Run sfc /scan now using option 2 in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

    Please post back the results.
    Please indicate what message was displayed at the end:

    Windows found no integrity violations

    OR

    Corrupt files were found, and windows was unable to fix them.

    OR

    Corrupt files were found, and windows successfully repaired them

    If you haven`t turned off system restore, windows should have created a restore point just before you updated iTunes, restore windows to that point and everything should go back to normal.
