Can anyone help me with this issue. Driving me nuts to not have my saver operational.
Has anyone encountered this before?
Please let me know.
I was scratching my head over this and I cannot think how PSA could have any effect upon the Windows screensaver. If you go to the screensaver dialog and click the Preview button, does it display then?
Screensavers are just programs that Windows schedules after the specified period of inactivity. Nothing to do with PSA.
I just tried it. [I don't normally use a screensaver, as they seem a pointless waste of CPU powre and don't "save" anything.] It works fine for me.
You could try uninstall/reinstall of PSE SE.
Colin and Dave,
>Went over to my Screen Saver options and changed to "Aquarium".
I was reading a few threads tonight and when I read this one, the reference to the
screen saver jumped out at me. I think that it was one of the screen savers that conflicted with some versions of PS Album and PS Elements.
I don't think that Acquarium came with Windows itself and maybe your original screen saver also had the same problem. So Dave if you do want a screen saver, you might thy a basic one that came with Windows itself. Based on what multiple people posted months ago, it just might solve your problem. Why - I don't know.... this is a pragmatic "whatever works" recommendation.
I seem to recall that PSE 3 has conflicts with some Windows themes. Isn't that where this screensaver came from. I didn't think of this, as I'm kinda old fashioned and have a plain desktop and cannot see the point of screensavers.
I think there are actually multiple different screen savers called Acquarium - one I thnk was in a MS Plus addon to Windows and the other from a different company. I think that even the one in the MS Plus purchase addon could cause problems, but I have not personally used either.
