Windows XP Sp3
Running on Windows 2003 AD environment
Users do not have local admin rights

Its seems just out of nowhere we are getting some of our Xp Sp3 pc's coming up with the error below
when certain users randomly walk away from their pc's the screensaver launches as normal then the Error attached appears.
I have gotten users to change the screensaver but it still comes up.
Ive seen various other solutions out there on the net that suggest "unticking" turn on/off screensaver" this doesn't seem to resolve anything as it comes up randomly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
