Disabling screen saver when running defrag

Came accross this and thought mm Very Very interesting Configuring Disk Defragmenter to automatically disable screen saver…..:–
If you want to ensure that the screen saver does not launch while you are defragmenting your hard disk, you can configure Disk Defragmenter to automatically disable the screen saver when it is running by adding a little setting to the registry. To begin, you’ll launch the Registry Editor by typing Regedit.exe in the Run dialog box. Once the Registry Editor is up and running, navigate through the following subkeys:

* Software
* Microsoft
* Windows
* CurrentVersion
* Applets

Now, right-click the Applets key and select New | Key. Name the new key Defrag. Next, right-click the newly created Defrag key and select New | String and name it Settings. At this point, double-click the Default value inside the Settings key and change the value to YES. To complete the operation, close the Registry Editor and restart Windows 98. Once Windows 98 restarts, you will be able to run Disk Defragmenter without worrying about interference caused by the screen saver.
