    This isn't a big problem, just a question. My brother has a screensaver called Aquarium on his computer, he said it came with the computer. I would like to download it but don't know where to go to get it. Is it a windows download, a separate company download, or what? I don't see nowhere where it says to download new screensavers.

    thanks for the reply. Lots of aquatic screensavers out there. Question, can you get an infection from downloading screensavers? In other words, can nasties come in on screensavers? I have quite a bit of antivirus,spyware,firewall tools installed and am just wondering if they would stop an infection from downloading a screensaver? Should I download it to a disk first, scan it, then install it?

    The aquarium screensaver he has is probably the one that comes with Microsoft Plus!

    I would personally be very leary of downloading any "free" screensavers as a lot of them tend to install with malware/spyware. Unless you know the source is reputable I wouldn't use one.
