My screen saver settings are greyed out and I am unable to set any screen saver in Windows XP Pro when logged into a domain.  If I am logged in the local machine, it is OK, but I need it to work on the domain.  I have tried to modify the Registry (HKey Current User - Software - Policies - Microsoft - Windows - Control Panel - Desktop) without any success.  Finally I just deleted any Screen Saver values in that location of the registry - still with no success.
Any ideas?
