    We're trying various scenarios, I'm sure we'll get to the bottom of it. He says it's intermittent anyway, so not a real problem or a bug that support could work on. One thing we did find out, Win key + L not only locks the desktop, it locks the A/V scan too which is a bug that support could work on.

    Do people still use screen-savers? How quaint.

    Why not, they look better than most desktop screens but I realise they are no longer necessary since the demise of CRT Monitors.

    I participate in the at home project SETI and the screen saver is really nice and fun to watch.

    I remember a few years back on XP I would get notices that the screen saver should be disabled because it could block the AV from running a scan when the PC goes into non-use mode. Haven't actually used one since then (screen saver) so hard to say if the same applies to OS's 7 on up.
