Windows 7: Bubbles Screen Saver - Change Settings

First, I couldn't figure out how to reply without getting the window that says "reply with quote," Which was quite long, and I've noticed few others "reply with quote." So, I deleted the quote.

Thank you Brink. I will keep the information at hand and wait for one of my computer expert friends to be on hand before I attempt your solution.

Interestingly, since I posted my note about bubbles going 90 miles an hour after a while, the problem has not appeared again. Yesterday the bubbles were on for over 5 hours and still moving in slow motion. I know, give it time; they will certainly go kaflooey again, just as the blank screensaver, which I use at night, will, soon enough, refuse to work unless I hit "preview." When either screensaver won't work go on except in preview, the preview will run for forever until I hit a key or move the mouse. Quite odd.

Am I correct in assuming Microsoft knows about this problem? And is it possible, as another blogger suggested, that MS will come up with a patch or an update to fix the issue?

Appreciator,

I'm not aware of any fix for this yet since there doesn't seem to be a specific cause found yet for it.

Hello Jason, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not sure if this will work in XP or not. Vista and Windows 7 screen savers are not supported in XP.

resetting bubbles screensaver problem

I followed Shawn's instructions to eliminate the desktop image on the bubbles screensaver and it worked fine on my windows 7 computer. But when I tried it on my sister's windows 7 professional computer, I could not switch from hexadecimal to decimal.
I would switch from hexadecimal to decimal and then close the window but then it would default to hexadecimal.
Can someone help?
Thanks

Hello John, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This is normal. By default, when you modify a registry value, it will have "Hexadecimal" selected. For the purposes of the tutorial, you would just select "Decimal" to make entering the data value easier since trying to enter a hexadecimal value would be much more unnecessarily complicated. That's all.

bubbles problem

If going back to the hexadecimal button is normal, is there another reason for resetting the bubbles screensaver works on my computer but not on my sister's computer?
Thanks for welcoming me to the forum.

Are you able to select Decimal to enter the decimal value?

Please go ahead and post back with some screenshots showing what you have in the registry for this to see if there may be something wrong.

bubbles problem

I can enter a value, in this case there is the option of 0 or 1. I can enter either one when the decimal button is pressed. The 0 value is supposed to make the background black.

Again, this works on my computer but I have tried it repeatedly on my sister's computer and it will not remove the desktop image from the bubbles screensaver.
My sister's computer is not available to me at this time so I am unable to send any screenshots.
