  • no screensaver comes up

    Hi,
    I've followed all the steps for the LOGON.SCR trick however no screensaver ever comes up. It has stayed at the login screen for hours. Any suggestions? TIA

          Have you tried any of the other tools like the cd boot?

            I've been trying using the boot disk (http://ebcd.pcministry.com/). I change the password but when I go to login, it doesn't work. (although its pretty straight forward) Are there any step-by-step instructions? Has anyone had an "aha" moment with the boot disk once they got it to work? TIA

              Hi all, I've been trying using the boot disk (http://ebcd.pcministry.com/). I change the password but when I go to login, it doesn't work.

              To make sure I'm not a (complete) idiot I tried it on a different windows 2000 machine (this time professional and not server) and it worked there. Is it because its a w2k server?

              Is my locked machine extra special?

                WFP will restore the original LOGON.SCR. See my post here to understand why the LOGON.SCR hack no longer works:
