|ok i've been studpid - my partner has had a look with me and we have more info (actually this info will prob make a difference of the solution).|
When i start up comp - everthing is fine and i log in.
The popup 'error cant find macromedia flash' appears when i leave the comp and not use it, then come back to use pc (I have set the screensaver to wait 1min & ticked on resume, password protect for testing) - so on leaving the comp for 1 min it goes to screensaver mode
when i hit a key this is when the error message appears - then if i press ok it just goes to the next screen which is the usual unlock comp. screen.
Sorry for not being so clear before - now can you help???? I haven't change anything on the screensaver (i have used the same one for 4 years)
Just a thought on the screensaver. I when to the screensaver settings and i have picture which i got from internet 4 years ago. so just mucking about and pressed 'settings' button on the screen saver tab in display properties and the same error message pops up
