Screensaver in group policy with user control of what screensaver?

I have a two desktop PCs in my Office that contains very important data and many times I forget to lock the system before leaving for lunch or tea. So I wanted to put a password on ScreenSaver so that it locks the system automatically. I wanted to do it via Group Policy. So I wanted to know if there is any easy method using which I can force screensaver to use password but at the same time it should provide an option to me to choose their specific screensaver.

If you guys have any idea regarding this please let me know as well.

RE: Screensaver in group policy with user control of what screensaver?

Yes, that is possible and there is an easier way as well. Just go to Start, Run, type GPEDIT and press Enter. Under Group Policy editor navigate to the following location:
Quote:
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\Display
Here you need to make the following changes:
  • Screen Saver: Set this to enabled
  • Screen Saver Timeoute: Set this to your specified time
  • Screen Saver executable name: set this to Not Configured

That?s it.
