    Vista - Screen Saver won't start

    I can't get the screen saver to come on. I have set and reset screen saver,
    even rebooted after setting it. Does Vista have a known issue with screen
    saver?

    There is a conflict with Vista screen saver and several types of wireless
    mice. MS has an optional update that corrects it.
    Try this link for an alternative:

    This is probably it. I bought a MS wireless lasor point mouse 6000. Will
    check out the fix. Thanks

    wireless mouse, the screensaver will come on. I have found no solution to
    this as yet. anyone out there know of an update we are missing? Karen

    I installed the Microsoft 6000 wireless keyboard and mouse yesterday and am
    having the same problem - screen saver won't come on - did you find any
    solutions that worked?

    Yes, the same thing happened to my screensaver and about a million other
    people who have Vista and a wireless mouse. Install this update: "Microsoft
    HID Non-User Input Data Filter". You can get it by going to Start - Control
    Panel - Windows Update - Check for Updates.

    That fixed my screen saver the first time. But it's broken again. Anyways,
    I hope that helps with yours.

    Stupid question......but I have the file downloaded...but I dont know how to
    install it. The file is zipped..and when winzip tries to un-zip it..it does
    not work. Am I supposed to insert the file on the c drive somewhere as is?

    I go to the windows update section, and the file needed does not come up (I
    tried t his first)

    Any thoughts?
