    I have two user profiles set up on my PC that runs Windows XP SP2, so
    I usually leave it at the login screen when I'm not using the
    computer. After a few minutes of inactivity the default XP screen
    saver comes on when I leave the computer at the login screen. Is there
    any way to change that screen saver to another one of my choice?

    When I am logged in to my profile I have it set so that my chosen
    screen saver comes on. That's easy to do of course. But I need someone
    to tell me how to change the screen saver that comes on from the login

    Thank you very much.

    Google for "windows logo changer" (no quotes). There are many
    programs that will help (it can be done manually but it takes a
    long time to explain how) and many are free.
