ScreenSaverIsSecure registry value on windows

1 post in this topic

I've got some security software constantly complaining that ScreenSaverIsSecure is not enabled. I keep enabling it and it gets turned off. I just determined and see in the synergy source code that synergy is changing this registry setting while it is running. Is there any work-around for this? Disabling any security feature without a warning and a solid reason is nasty. I don't understand if synergy is already defeating the screen saver why it needs to change the ScreenSaverIsSecure setting anyhow. steve

I imagine this is done to facilitate Synergy's "screen saver sync" feature. Have you tried turning that off yet? Configure Server -> Advanced Server Options.
