The computer I use at work is one that I share . The problem comes in this: Every time I come back to it there is a screen saver.  this upsets me. The last time I left a screen saver the image became burned on to the screen.
Can I set something to keep anyone from adding unwanted things?

You can invoke a screen saver of your choice and password lock it.

Depending on your environment, there are other considerations as well.  This gives you some ideas of the concerns and roadblocks.

Of course, if you were using WindowsXP, each user could set their own environment and have their own unique settings which would help this type of problem.

Can you not work this out with the other user, or perhaps your Administrator?

Good luck,

I'm confused by your statement that the last time you left a screen saver, it burned into your screen.  The purpose of a screen sver is to have it always moving and occupying different space and intensity of color, etc., so that the damage and burn on screen is minimized.  If you left a screen saver that was a static image, that would definitely be a problem and not even quality as a screen saver.
