    Hi,

    Recently my ScreenSaverEngine.app stopped working. Think it was likely after a software update.

    When activated either by a hot corner or when the screensave kicks in I get the dialogue box:

    "You are opening the application ScreenSaverEngine.app for the first time. Are you sure you want to open this application?"​

    Accepting and opening the application does nothing. Changing the selected hot corner or screensaver also makes no difference.

    I tried the solution posted here but with no effect: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2165990&tstart=0

    I have been using Mac OS X for about 4 months, and am reasonable competent using Red Hat/Fedora and Ubuntu linux.

    Appreciate suggestions to rectify this issue.

    Cheers,
    -Jason

    Fixed: ScreenSaverEngine.app not working

    Hi,

    Was fixed by a reboot. Who'd have thunk it - thought that was windoze boxes only.
