Some of the best free Screensavers

Posted by ClifNotes, Oct 2008, permalink Desktop Tools

 

I have tried dozens of free screensavers over the years. Most went promptly into the recycle bin. Some weren't really free and popped up nag screens. Even worse, some had hidden malware in them.

 

Finding free screensavers on the net is very risky if you don't know what you are doing. Even the sponsored results from Google will often point you to screensavers with hidden badware in them. That's why I was very pleased to find that one person had tried a bunch of freebies that are safe and selected what they thought were the best ones.

 

I've looked them over and I approve. I've used several of the screensavers mentioned, but they came up with a few I hadn't seen before. Have fun!

 

Quote from the website

What screensaver to choose? Most companies have limited demo- and shareware-versions, but they are almost always rather disturbing than helpful and will only get on your nerves.

 

In fact, there are only few pearls - amazing screensavers you’d be really ready to pay for once you’ve tested them. We’ve downloaded and installed a hell of a lot of them, we’ve had many problems (mostly adware) with them, but in the end we’ve tested all of them. And we’ve selected the most beautiful, interesting and unusual screensavers for you.
