What is a screensaver?

Screen savers were originally designed to stop image burn on computer screens.  However, most modern computers can now turn the monitor off after a period of non-use, and that's to be encouraged if the computer is going to be left on for any long period. Now screen savers tend to be used to hide the screen while you're away from your desk, or to display some interesting image or message while the computer is not being used.

Requirements for the screen saver on this page:

This should work with any PC (sorry, Mac users, maybe later we'll get some for you). It does not use DirectX and so requires no special screen drivers. The faster your PC, the smoother the results, but it's been designed to work well with older computers as well as faster, newer ones.

Save the screen saver by right-clicking on the link below.  This will allow you to save the file wherever you wish.  File size is approximately 2.5MB.

Then to install the screensaver, open your file manager and find where you saved the above file.  Double-clicking the file name will open this file with a .zip file utility.  Inside the .zip file you will find an .exe program (GreekArtInstall).  Just double-click it to install and follow the directions on the screen.  This screen saver was not created with any malicious adware or spyware (or even friendly ware *wink*).  There is an "uninstall" program imbedded into the screen saver.

To select a screen saver, or to change how long it takes to appear you need to change settings within Windows.  To find these settings, right-click on your desktop and then select “properties” followed by “screen saver.” Alternatively, go to your control panel, double-click the “display” option, then select “screen saver.”  Consult your Windows help for further information.

If you have problems or questions, please write the creator of the screen saver Kythera Ann.
