I use to belong to SETI@Home years ago, and have just rejoined. I believe everything is running OK, but may be too early.

My question is: Can I run this WITHOUT having the BOINC (or other) screensaver come up? I would prefer it just run in the background like my Norton 360 does.

I set to "never" all the screensaver options in Windows, but it sill pops up.

Suggestions?

Never mind. It looks like it's as easy as simply going back into desktop preferences and turning off the screensaver. The SETI@Home portion does still start up on schedule.
