Windows 7: Bubbles Screen Saver - Change Settings

Thanks Shawn,

The really weird thing is that is was working properly on this boot, but then after an hour or so doing various things on the machine it has now reverted to the black background. I guess that's MS for you! For a screensaver I think I'll just leave it be, maybe in time I'll notice a pattern, or maybe MS will issue an update that fixes it for good.

Oddly enough, I had my new, Windows 7 computer for 3 months before my bubbles screen saver started tossing the bubbles around the screen at 90 miles an hour after an hour and a half or so.

I find all the information on this forum very interesting, but I'm too much of a non-Geek to try the solutions here. I'm scared skinny to mess around with the registry since I still don't even understand what the darn registry is. LOL

But I've said all the info here in Favorites and when I finally get my tower back to the computer store that built my computer, I will show it to them. Happily, I'm still under warranty.

Hello Appreciator, and welcome to Seven Forums.

We'll always be here if you have any questions.

Since you're new with this, I would recommend that you could create a restore point before making any changes with something you're not comfortable with first when you're ready. This way if a mistake is made, you could easily do a system restore to go back to that created restore point to undo the mistake.

Mmm. I've got the million-miles-an-hour bubbles flying across the screen, but I've nevered edited the screensaver settings. Is anyone else seeing this?

Hello Golden,

Could you export and upload your registry settings from the Bubbles key at the registry location below while it is still running fast like that? I'll be happy to take a look to compare them with my entries to see if anything may stand out as why.

Thanks Brink. I just activated buble again, and it seems to be normal speed now - not sure what has changed. Export attached.

Regards,
Golden

Thank you Golden.

Yep, those are the same registry entries I have for mine running at normal speed as well.

Thanks Brink....we'll put it down to some sort of quirky behaviour. If I see it again, I'll try to work out what is happenning.
