LockUp or FREEZE

By mbertel ·
I have a user that whenever she leaves her machine on and does not use it for a few minutes it will lockup and the only way she can use the machine is reboot. I had her shut down the screen saver I also noticed she had an icon in her sys tray that apppeared to be a flashing camera once we got rid of the flashing camera icon another icon which looked the planet earth appeared. This icon represents some sort of program that will enable you have different wallpapers appear at randum one at a time. This might be the problem not really sure if someone has another idea or thought sure appreciate your input.
Thanks Markus R Bertel

LockUp or FREEZE

by DWH Co In reply to LockUp or FREEZE

Hello,
As mentioned by a couple of others here, the camera/globe icon refers to WEBSHOTS. It is not a screensaver though, it is a wallpaper program. However, wallpapers also consume system resources. Another notorious resource grabber is the FastFind (or FindFast) program that comes with WORD. Disable FF, and locate in the WEBSHOTS setup, how to disable the auto-update feature (removing it from the systray). I say that about WS because apparently your user likes varying wallpapers, and you do want a happy user?

Along with the other suggestions made, I'm sure that the problem will be resolved.
