Can you explain how to get it on the Display settings? I downloaded it but it doesn't come up on the display settings so I have no idea how to get it to function as a screensaver. (needlesstosay, please accept apologies for being completely useless as all this stuff!)

Downlaod the file and extract the .scr file into c:\windows\system32.

Then go into the control panel and double-click on the display settings. Then click on the screensaver tab and scroll through the available listings of screensavers. As long as the file is in your windows system32 directory it will show up as Bleeping_Computer under the listing.

You can also do it this way:

d/l the zip file, open the file, and in WinZip, right-click the file, and select test. This will give you an idea on how it would look, without having to actually load it in your settings. Click anywhere on it, to stop the test.

We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

I think you can reduce the image size and post the pic as jpeg from photobucket or some other hosting site..

Down in the bayou, Bubba called an attorney and asked, "Is it true they're suin' the cigarette companies for causing people to get cancer?
"Sure is Bubba. But why you asking?"
"Cause what I want to know is, I was thinking, can I sue Budweiser for all them ugly women I've slept with?"
