I had this problem and found the solution here, thanks Zeke. However,
I didn't need to uninstall TB2. Infact, The problem was (indirectly)
because I had stopped Timbuktu's "Tb2Launch" sevice. In seeing the
solution below I first tried starting the service again, and that

Does anyone know why? Is there a way I can still stop TB2, I'd rather
not uninstall it.

I'm running version 7.0.

Subject: 60 second delay after unlocking screen saver in XP

I run Windows XP (although this can also happen on Windows 2000 W2K
winxp). When I log in to my PC everything is normal. When I lock the
desktop or the screen saver locks the desk I hit to
unlock and enter my password. It takes exactly 60 seconds (exactly 1
minute) before the desktop appears.

The problem was caused by Timbuktu.

Timbuktu Pro for Windows, version 5.1, was installed for many months
with no trouble but then I added Remote Desktop to my PC and the
problem occurred.

Uninstalling Timbuktu solved the problem.
