what sort of error?

did you try repairing permissions? (applications > utilities > disk utility > repair disk permissions.)

it's a good first step to try.

right, ok so the system prefs crashed.

try throwing out the plist for screensaver.

your home folder > library > preferences > ByHost > screensaver

(will be labed com.screensaver something)

hopefully you won't need to reset more than just the screensaver preferences.

(here is a link to the guides on this)

thanks woman!
(had to fix that ^ ;))

most welcome. glad it worked.

I've heard the newest version of iTunes has done this to a few people using the artwork screensavers, so something is a bit off there but hopefully this keeps it sorted out. at least you know what to do if it claps out again. :)

BTW, this trick works in OS X Lion too. Initially, the iTunes screensaver doesn't work...or didn't on mine.

Thanks for the tip!
