Probably a simple answer

I have a problem with XP i recently had the dreaded XP virus which hijacked screensaver and wallpaper amongst other things but i am not sure if this is causing the current problem,well its not a problem just annoying.I have cleared the virus and done numerous spyware virus checks. It seems to be a screensaver option yet i cant find anywhere to change the setting after about 10 minutes left idle i get the Windows Tada music and it goes to the screen where you choose a user i know its not a serious problem but  annoying but i cant find anywhere to adjust the setting. I know you will probably think what an idiot but i have looked in power settings screensaver settings and anything that may look like it would adjust this setting but cant find anything any help would be greatly appreciated...Thanks

Try: Display Settings - Screen Saver tab... uncheck the option "On resume, password protect" ?

You can also disable the sounds too in control panel in case you've got fed up with the Windows cheese. I disable it on mine as the music is awful..
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
