Ohhhkay, so
one thing i noticed a while ago was that when i right clicked on my desktop and went to personalize, i wasnt able to change wallpaper and/or screensavers from there
i didnt think much of it b/c i found a way around to get new wallpapers
but now i want to set a screensaver
i couldnt find it anywhere so i went to Start/ Help and Support
it gave me a link to turn the screensaver on and off
i was all cool lets click it
but wait i cant
"your system administrator has disabled the launching of the Display Settings Control Panel"
i dont remember doing that..
aaand im the only one who uses this computer so im pretty sure no one else did it
soooo yea im stumped
any help would be much appreciated
(p.s. my recycling bin is fine)

If you added/performed any Tweaking software then maybe that did it. If you know which program that would be, track it down and try to set it back to normal.
Otherwise you might want to do a system restore to an older restore point from before you had this problem. Or of course, if you use Acronis, go back using an
archive.

That was honestly the worst advice Ive ever read. System restore? is that the best you can do? That should be LAST OPTION! oMG, LOL!

Dude, that fix is easy.. no need to restore..
