Archived from groups: microsoft>public>windowsxp>general (more info?)

My screen saver just up and quits on me for no apparent reason. It only
lasts for about 4-5 mins then it quits like something moved the mouse or hit
a key on the keyboard. I know it's not either of these because I unplugged
both my mouse and keyboard and it still does the same thing. I have also
checked for updates through microsoft and there is only the SP2 which I
choose not to download.

Is there anyway to reinstall just the screen saver portion of windows,
without reinstalling the whole sha-bang?

Any suggestions you could contribute would be greatly appreciated
