    Lockscreen screensaver refreshed every minute

    Hello! I am running windows 10 on my PC. I recently switched my screensaver to the lock screen by going to the screen saver settings, selecting the "(None)" option and then activating "on resume, display logon screen". After a set amount of time, the lock screen successfully displays, but every minute it shows a loading icon as if it's logging in, then reverts back to the lock screen.

    There must be a way to get rid of this loading every minute. Some kind of setting, editing the registry. I have searched so many different pages on google but have found no answer. Please and thank you for your help!
