A. This problem is due to the use of of a virus scanning program (such as McAffee) which is set to run whenever a screen saver is run. This only happens with screen savers which use a 3D interface called OpenGL. The system detects the virus scanning and thinks the system is being used, it then terminates the screen saver. Another side effect of this virus scanning is that you may hear your floppy drives or hard drives being accessed each time the virus scan is being done. In order to solve this problem:
The following is from the McAffee web site. You can find it at the address: http://www.McAffee.com/support/faq/faqscr.aspScreenScan is not currently compatible with Windows95 3-D screen savers or third-party screen savers, such as AfterDark, however, our 3.10 version of ScreenScan will be compatible with the 3-D screen savers. It is in Beta at them moment at http://beta.mcafee.com. A standard Windows95 screen saver must be selected and ScreenScan must be enabled in order to scan during 'screen save' mode. Another symptom of incompatible screen savers is the screen saver coming on and suddenly going back to the main screen. The incompatibility can also be a bigger problem on slower processors, such as a 486pc. To disable screenscan do the following: Navigate to Start | Settings | Control Panel | Display Properties. Under the ScreenScan tab deselect "Enable Scanning while in Screen Scanning Mode"
A. The default configrations that contain text start with "3D Text". You can copy or change these and make your own configurations. IMPORTANT: If you want to change the text used by a configuration such as "3D Text + Sphere With Company Name", you don't change the text in that configuratin. You change it in a configuration which is referred to by that configuration. There are other configurations which contain initials and the company name. When you change the text in these configurations, all configurations that use initials and company name text will also be changed. The configurations to change are:
There are two methods you can use to change the text.
Method 1: When the text is specified in the configuration that you want to edit.
Method 2: When the text is in a configuration referred to be another configuration.
A. Images, such as a photograph, are often applied to a rectangular object, although they can be applied to any 3D object. The default configrations that contain images start with "3D Image". You can copy or change these and make your own configurations. IMPORTANT: If you want to change the image used by a configuration such as "3D Image + Picture 2 Book", you don't change the image in that configuratin. You change it in a configuration which is referred to by that configuration. To specify images/photographs. There are two methods you can use to change the text.
Method 1: When the image is specified in the configuration that you want to edit.
Method 2: When the image is in a configuration referred to be another configuration.
