    Hi.
    My lappy just went into screensaver mode, and this cropped up in place of the screensaver:
    'this screensaver has expired please contact your vendor'

    It seems to happen with all my non-windows screensavers.

    Ideas?

    Odd.
    Ive re-installed the affected screensavers, and they now work? :confused:
    They appear to use the same install program (3x Lemon Jelly, 1x Dido, off the official sites), so they must be time limited.

    Could it be part of a program that needs dosh to keep it going, like a trial version? There are one or two screensaver programs around i think

    Dunno.
    Theres no mention of costs in the screensaver or on the websites.
    Go and have a look, there on the LemonJelly & Dido websites.
