I just built a network of 11 Windows XP Pro workstations and a Windows Server 2003. It is set up as a domain and there seemed to be no problems whatsoever. Until the users turned up and wanted to change their scrensavers!
I now find, on all 11 workstations, that as soon as I go to the display proeperties and click on the screensave tab - the computer freezes completely and needs a 'hard' restart.
All workstations have a proprietary software (ScoutNET) installed and this may well be the cause. The problem did not appear before installing ScoutNETbut then again, I didn't trytochange the screensaver of course!
I will be doing some more troubleshooting tomorrow and will report back.
Anyone ever seen this before?
