I have a screen saver that i need to enforce the use of....  without using policies.  (why do they always make is harder than it has to be??)  My intention is to run a vb program from the login script that would change the active screen saver (whatever it maybe) to the companies standard.  Any easy way of doing this??

well to change the current screen save, just use writeprivateprofilestrings or writeprofilestrings api calls to change the value in system.ini that reads

[boot]
SCRNSAVE.EXE=C:\WINDOWS\CHANNE~1.SCR

the value after the equals sign is the screensaver that will  be used.
