Our vulnerability scanner reported;
"The desktop settings on the target system indicate that the screen saver is not activated for the detected user. To ensure that a screen saver is active, set a screen saver using Display or Personalize Control Panel applet for the user, and/or create or modify the following registry settings: Hive: HKEY_USERS Key: ".DEFAULT" or SID\Control Panel\Desktop Value: ScreenSaveActive Type: REG_SZ Data: 1 Value: SCRNSAVE.EXE Type: REG_SZ Data: Path\to\screensaver.scr (e.g. C:\Windows\system32\Mystify.scr) Note: This setting may be overridden if the "No screen saver" Group Policy setting is enabled."
I made the registry changes and it fixed several Windows 2008 R2 Servers but there are a few other Windows 2008 R2 I edited the registry and still get the error. They should all be effected by the same GPO. Any suggestions?
