I have Seti@home configured so that in the Control Panel's display properties Screensaver's tab I have it set for it to display after 10 minutes of inactivity. I also have the settings set so that 10 minutes after that it goes to a blank screen. However after that I've been getting the following message: "Secure Windows desktop detected. This configuration is currently not supported". What's happening here and why am I getting this message? What's wrong? Otherwise the program seems to be acting ok. Please help.

The BOINC screensaver will not work when a password is needed to get out of the screensaver.

This begs the question: Why? Who - in there right mind - would write an app that WON'T work with a systems security settings in place? Let's see.... I know! A hacker!

Come on. This setting makes no sense in this day and age.
