I have a customer that is looking for a place to get free screen savers. I don't care for them but I don't go looking for them as I know what they can bring with them. But I figured that you guys would know where to get free malware free screen savers.

The one I'm using now: newrings_cassini_big.jpg (JPEG Image, 2766x1364 pixels)

Another site: Windows Wallpapers and Backgrounds - Desktop Nexus Technology
