After loading BONIC software the exiting windows XP screen savers no longer function correctly. When selecting these screen savers windows reports an error.

This happens with all DC projects. The 3D screensavers supplied with windows seem to run at true idle priority so if you are running anything that uses major CPU time they can't get any cycles and the computer hangs.
