Hey, after much trying, i have found that it is impossible to get the CPDN screensaver to hold any settings,
is there a way to delete it so that it doesn\'t come up, but the other boinc screen savers still work?

thanks

The screen saver just reflects the settings set for the graphics. (As in Show graphics in the Tasks tab.)
These settings must be set in the preferences in your account on the project\'s server. And then you need to Exit from BOINC, and re-boot your computer. (I don\'t know why, but that\'s how it is.)

Similar info has been posted many times in reply to screen saver questions. Use the search option to find them.

After you\'ve edited your graphics preferences in the CPDN project section of your account you need to go into BOINC manager Projects tab, select CPDN and click Update. This tells the CPDN server about your changes. Maybe you didn\'t do this?
