    OK I need a clock screensaver. I tried the drunken clock screensaver (tipsy) or something like that. I tried world clock and like it but you costumize it. Anyone know of a good clock screensaver for winxp?

    I would check out any kind of screensaver carefully. Make sure it is safe and doesn't contain more than you want on your computer.

    Hey Ice, that is cool... thanks. :)

    Cheers, TAS

    PS: Hint for skins. There was no real place for skins, so I created a sub-folder in the main, called it skins, dl'd and put them in there, so can navigate to it to change, so all in one spot. :)
    Setup was dead easy, not like usual windows, just little pop-ups asking questions and just select what you want. ;)

    Below sea-level. Safe and sound behind our dikes:
    Good advice, Ron.

    But then again: Should anything happen to be there you didn't ask for, and/or something go wrong... wouldn't that be a nice testcase for all your security defenses/cleaners?

    Think p o s i t i v e :D

    yep, good advice.. but.. that link of mine was thoroughly tested by me a good while back... no alerts from TDS/KAV/AAW/SSD/WG. :)

    and... I scanned the Ice downloaded file.....naturally.

    it looks quite tempting i might download it myself. but i always disable my screensaver, mainly because of defragging, which i do in safe mode, do you have a sereensaver in safe mode? is there any other reason for having my screensaver disabled?, do you all use your screensavers? thanks :) lots of questions? o_O :D

    Yep I use a screensaver. PC on 24/7.
    Yep, I disable most times during AV/AT/Defrag scans.
    Safe Mode, nah ... only had to go to safe mode once for small prob and that was like for about 5 mins. Honestly, in 9 years of PC ownership, been in Safe Mode once. :)

    thanks, so i can use my screensaver, but have to disable it during scanning and defragging?.
    i always defrag in safe mode so more things can be defragged, and i do some scanning in safe mode too because its quicker and more likely to have better results. i spend half my life forgetting to press the F8 key when i want to get into safe mode, then having to reboot again :D

    Ronjor you make a good point. That's why I asked here at this forum. ;)

    qwhale looks good but I hate them 24hr clocks. I'm not good with clocks like that. I always have to count the hours on my fingers to know the right hours. :)

    Slam that's true but something might slip by. I really don't use screensavers that are in exe files anyways. Some don't come in .exe files.

    Anyone try a screensaver called MyCorkBoard? http://www.mycorkboard.com/
    If so, how is it? Does it contain spyware or any other nasties?
