 turn on/off screen saver?

Anyone know how to turn the screen saver on or off with WSH?

The registry key is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. The value is
ScreenSaveActive. But turning this value on or off doesn't affect the screen
saver properties dialog. There is another value, ScreenSave_Data, but it
doesn't change when using the dialog.

I'm using Windows 98.

Thanks!

Look in the [Boot] Section of the System.ini file for the "SCRNSAVE.EXE="
line.  A blank to the right of the = changes the screen saver to none.

Regards,

Pete
