screen saver problem

By gnielsen ·
I have a friend / client who has just bought a new system with a sempron processor, 512 mg ram & 80 gig HD running XP home. When he boots up, the screen saver never comes on (set for 10 mins)even after running all night. If he logs on to the internet for even a second, then logs off, the SS starts working. He has run Adaware & spybot & now has CA sotware running. Any ideas?

What runs at startup?

by jdmercha In reply to screen saver problem

It sounds like something runs at startup that is waiting for an interent connection before it completes. It could be someting like auto-update.
