Screen Saver and IE8

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application
Hello, I am having a problem with my screen saver.  I have been using it for over twenty years.  On this new system with Windows 7 screen saver stopped working all of the sudden last August.  No matter how many times tried to go again and made sure it work with five minutes starting and I apply and okay and set the photos to come out it never comes out.  I am quite knowledgeable with it since I have been using it since 1985.  Any one might know why Windows 7 is failing to launch the screen saver?  I need to get it to work since I use it to protect my screen and give me privacy to my desktop?  It must be some corruption happens to cause it not to appear or work.  Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.  I would like to know also if some of you have noticed that IE 8 needs to be reset monthly.  Is this the norm now to lose everything on IE 8 and rest it again?  It freezes on me and no matter what I do I have to rest it in order to work.  I just got it working by resetting it on August 31<sup>st</sup>.  Now it is working again.  When I rest it I lose all of the passwords and user names etc. I have on it.  It is not too great for that to happen.  One thing to remember the screen saver is an integral part of Windows.  Not independent software. It is designed in windows 7.  I jus

Detect Browser Screen Size??


Hi Everyone,  I need to detect the size of the user's screen for mobile devices (especially the BlackBerry). I've read a lot of pages that seem to refer me to the Request.Browser object, but I'm finding that this object doesn't have the correct values. For example, I have a BlackBerry and when I use the Request.Browser to get the screen size, it tells me it is 640x480. Well, I know it's not that big since an image of 300px wide just barely fits. Also, when I run on my desktop browser, it also says my screen is 640x480. I can assure you, it is not 640x480! ha!

  How does anyone reliably get the browser's screen size?? Do I have to revert to some kind of JavaScript? If so, where can I read more about it? Will it be any more reliable? Someone must have an idea about this. Thanks in advance!!

two adjacent double quotes in json causes blue screen by JavaScriptSerializer

Hello, I am using System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer to deserialize  http requests.  I get the blue screen when the contents I am deserializing has two double quotes, for example:  ""country"". Is there a fix for this?  Currently I replace the "" with a special string and then I deserialization, then I put back the "".  I do this for a given field in the object which I've seen comes in with ""s.  The problem is that I should be doing this for all fields in the input json.  This is a lot of extra code to write as I could be deserializing many different types of Json objects.  The "" is needed by the client to specify a quoted string, so I can't ask for the input to be changed. Any help on this subject would be really appreciated. Many thanks.     I am using .Net framework 3.5.
