Avast screensaver
« on: December 21, 2010, 10:56:42 PM »
Hi,
I have a license for Internet security suite (on Win XP sp3).
I discover recently that only screensavers of XP can operate normally.
All those I installed become inactive as soon as I close the window to select them (right clic on desktop - properties -
screensaver).
They remain active only if I make them "parent" of Avast, which leads me to believe (after several trials) that the screensaver of Avast is responsible for the situation.
Can you confirm and if there is a solution.
Thanks in advance. ???

Hi,
When I choose the screensaver of Avast and make one of my personal screensaver parent of it, it works fine (the two screensavers simultaneously).
It does not work when I choose only one of my personal screensaver.
Sorry if my english is not perfect.
Thanks.

Which is this screensaver name? Do you know its webpage to post the link to it?

Sorry for the delay...
I would first like to clarify that all worked perfectly before, and this for quite some time.

The ones who does not work unless parent with Avast :
- nfs Fire Place (http://www.newfreescreensavers.com/) : error message
- Nord-tec snow Flakes (no link)
- Clock screensaver of Elvis (no link) : causes error and Windows loses theme and icons
- Screenclean (http://www.clubic.com/telecharger-fiche210024-screen-clean-screensaver.html) : crashes on the window "Display Properties"

The ones that did not work yesterday, but well today  (???)
- Coral Reef 3D (Give Away of the Day)
- Halloween Adventure (GAOTD)

The ones I don't have tried yesterday, but they work today :
- Autumn Wonderland 3D (GAOTD)
- Serene Screen Marine Aquarium
