Question

How can the screen saver password protection be deactivated again?

Answer

The password protection (screen saver) becomes active right after SGEasy has been installed.
However, the Control Panel does not mark the checkbox for password protection.

To deactivate password protection when you use a screen saver, even after installation, look at the Registry entry

HKLM\Software\Utimaco\SGLogon , and check the value named "ScrSaverProt".

If this value name is "1", or is not present, you will still need to enter a password to unlock the desktop.
If this value name is not present, you must create it with the REG_DWORD file type and enter "0" to deactivate the screen saver's password protection.
