I have Win 98 Plus installed. Under screen saver settings, Architecture and Geometry are two screen savers available. If either of these is selected, under settings, there is a playlist with many choices. I am unable to get any of these to run even though I have selected to change every 60 seconds. Any suggestions??

Are your running login profile for different users. I am thinking here that your default profile does not have a screensaver selected. Do other screen savers work?

IN Neither of those Screen savers what you are talking will work. I have MS PLUS 98. and the option you refer is from ORGANIC ART (98! PLUS). if you select ORGANIC ART (98! Plus) the option will work fine.and you can add Geometry and Architecture and they will work with many combination. but not in the others 2.
select that and you will be fine. Otherwise it will not. If you have a corrupted installation of MSPLUS where you cant find the screensaver I refered you will need to reinstall it.

I had not seen the Organic Art selection under Screen Savers. That seems to have corrected the problem. Thank you..
