Screensaver suddenly broken RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm not entirely sure why, but screensavers are suddenly broken in Win7. They never appear, ever, only when I use the preview option.

    I think this may have happened after Malwarebytes Anti-Malware detected Hijack.DisplayProperties (which appears to be a false positive) and removed it? Like I said, I'm not sure.

    If it also matters, I'm using an MS wireless desktop. I do have the fixes for it installed (KB911895).

  • Exactly the same for me, but no malware detected on my PC. However, Windows Update installed 4 updates as I shut down on 29th September, so I suspect one of:

     Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB979538)
     Update for Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View List for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2362765)
     Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB2416427)
     Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2158563)

    I have a MS Wireless Mouse, with KB981195 installed. I haven't yet found out how to try reinstalling it.
