  • Question

  • i made a configuration for a screensaver with a password protection ( 60 sec) on a user account . Switch to the administrator account and select in steady state the user account with most restrictions. When logon to the user account the standard configuration of the screensaver is back. (600 sec and no password protection).<o:p></o:p>

    Every user account is configured seperate. If i check the hkeyusers in the regedit it is visible.

    But when i activate windows staedy state the user account settings of the sreensaver will bet set to default.
