    My Windows Screen Saver is broken


    I currently have Windows 10 Professional 64bit, OS Version: 20H2, Build: 19042.867 and I am having trouble getting my Screen Saver to work. I can preview it fine but it just will not start automatically when I am away from my PC.


    And rather annoyingly my Wife's Windows Home PC screen saver is working fine on next desk


    Ever since your Version 1903 Widows Update my Screen Saver has stopped working.
    I did also check Power Management was causing this issue


    1. I have updated all of my Windows drivers via. Driver Easy software on 13th April 2021
    2. Ran SFC [System File Checker] using sfc /scannow in an Administrator/Command Prompt window with this result: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
    3. Tried a completely new Clean Boot.
    4. Checked Windows Update - You're up to date > Last checked: Today, 12:39
    5a. Run DISM CheckHealth with: No component store corruption detected. The operation completed successfully.
    5b. Run DISM ScanHealth with: No component store corruption detected. The operation completed successfully.
    5c. Run DISM RestoreHealth with: The restore operation completed successfully. The operation completed successfully.

    Is there anything more you could suggest that I try?

    :)
