I am running VISTA operating system. I had deactivated the screen saver of the previous version. After updating the BOINC software, the screen saver was reactivated. The screen saver is not compatible with my current operating system. I require instructions to delete the screen saver. I do not plan on updating my operating system because I only use my laptop for BOINC, AMAZON shopping, and solitaire.

Right click on an empty place on the Windows desktop->Personalize->Screen Saver->Set to None or anything other than BOINC->OK.

BOINC Manager->File->Exit->check "Stop running tasks when exiting the BOINC Manager"->OK.
Wait up to 10 seconds.
Shut down the computer in your normal way.
