Screensaver keeps disabling itself. Its only the builtin starfield one, but every time I reboot, (either of 2 different computers) the screensaver has reverted to (none). Not that screensavers really do much for me, but I have Diskeeper set to defrag anytime the screen saver goes active. Is there a way to set the screensaver to stop it from disabling itself?

Thanks in advance.

Check for spyware, trojans, rootkits, viruses, etc.
They have been known to do that.
