Thanks DavidE...I agree a screen saver is of no real use with the flat screens but I just happen to like this particular saver...I'll probably wind up just letting it run and put it to sleep manually.

Thanks but that no longer starts the 32bit version which, if I'm not mistaken, was removed when IE10 installed. I hope MS didn't assume nobody with 64bit win7 would never need to run 32bit IE again...
