Microsoft Windows 7 : Screen Savers dropdown disabled (or grayed)

I wanted to edit the screensaver on my machine. I have windows 7 installed. I navigated to Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Personalization > Change Screen Saver
The 'Screen Saver' dropdown appeared to be disabled (or grayed) with 'None' selected.

  1. Open regedit.exe
  2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Policies > Microsoft > Windows > Control Panel > Desktop
  3. Right-click SCRNSAVE.EXE and select Delete.
