I just recently reloaded Windows 7 64 bit. The screen saver was working. After downloading all the updates it won't work. Is there someway to get it working again?

When you refer to it won't work, are you relating to it being greyed out in the personalization options, or are you relating to it actually not coming on when you set it?

Do you have a wireless mouse? If so, unplug the adapter from the computer and see if it kicks in the screensaver.

That was the problem. I pulled the receiver out and it worked. So I tried a different mouse with a mini receive and all is ok. Thank you for your help.
