I don't really understand what you are asking?

What exactly is your system doing that you don't like?

Is it just that you like the way Win 98 looks and the way the menu works or ?

thanks for your reply -what I mean to say is that in win98se, I could slow the pace of the display-I could mkae it very slow and nice to watch; the winXPsp2 version allows me to add lines and to vary the shape but does not allow me to change the speed at which the figure moves over the screen area-it is very fast and just kind of jumps around-I just want to slow it back to viewing speed better explination I hope Tricia

I checked the screen saver settings for "mystify" and could not find a way to slow the speed, even by adding extra colours or lines.
Sorry. Maybe someone who actually USES screensavers can come up with a way to slow it down, or perhaps direct you to another version.
Regards,

well, I will try again. in XP the poloygon bounces around the perimiter of the screen-very quickly and I mean VERY quickly. it goes bouncing so fast it gives me a headache. I tried to reload from a floppy my friend downloaded with her win98 Mystify. but the xp overrode it (?) ; online all I could find was a program for an old IBM hand held calculator or a program that someone else had written as their take on Mystify -does taht help?

right click on desk top/click properties/click screen saver/select mystify in drop down window/click settings---you will see a selection of settings for "mystify"

dear buddy-I have tried that repeatedly-in the win98 application, I could set the speed as well as colors, # on lines, active or clear screen-got any more suggestions?

There is no way to slow it down as far as I can tell.
