Hello. I now use W10, and my screensavers won't work anymore. The screensaver called ribbons won't work, and neither will bubbles, even though bubbles worked on W7.

Is there a error message you can share with us?

 

I would like you to check the system integrity of your Windows OS installation.

  • Please type cmd.exe into Start Menu search box.
  • Please right click cmd.exe and select "Run as administrator".
  • Please type the following command and press the <Enter> key: sfc /scannow (Please note that there is a space between 'sfc" and "/scannow".)
  • It should take about 20 minutes to run, if there are no serious errors.
  • If the System File Checker reports that some errors were fixed, but some remain; please reboot your computer and run the System File Checker from an Administrator Command Prompt, again.
  • If the System File Checker again reports that some errors were fixed, but some remain, please reboot your computer and run it a third time.
  • If "Resource Integrity Violations" (errors) are reported that could not be corrected, or were not corrected after a third SFC run, then please navigate to the folder: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS and copy the file "cbs.log" to your desktop immediately. I am asking you do that because that file is dynamic, so I want to be able to examine a copy that is unchanged from the time that the System File Checker was run.
  • If there are errors that couldn't be corrected, let me know and I will provide you with instructions as to how to upload the file

Hi FreeBooter,

 

When I tried to run a new screensaver (ss), it just wouldn't run. There were no error messages.

 

I ran the System File Checker from the Administrator Command Prompt 3 times, and each time it said that errors were found, but were corrected. I restarted the computer after each time the sfc was run. After the 3rd time, I went into Control Panel and changed the timeout from 7 min to 5 min and chose a different ss, then I chose the Ribbons ss again, and waited 5 minutes. Nothing happened.

 

Thanks anyway,

 

C64
