Screensaver settings disabled

Last Modified: 2012-08-14

I'm a Windows XP Pro w/SP2 user.

I've just installed a new screensaver.
After installing this, the Screensaver settings have been disabled. I'm guessing this screensaver installation program has modified the registry somewhere that disables the screensaver settings in the display settings. I want to change my screensaver but cannot because the area in the display settings for changing the screensaver has been disabled.

Anyone know where i can modify the registry to undo this?

Best Regards,
