Re: Group policy screen saver does not execute on new Vista machines
i'm havin a similar problem with my group policy settings. When a
computer is left at the ctrl alt delete logon screen, the screen saver
activates fine, however when a user is logged on, the screensaver
fails to activate and after the screensaver timeout, the screen simply
comes up with 'this computer is in use and has been locked' etc...
I've set the user configuration to enable the screensaver after 20
minutes and set the path to the screensaver to %windir%
\system32\logon.scr which is correct to my knowledge. Does anybody
have any ideas?
