Living Screensavers - pretty, simple and free

review from ClifNotes, Jun 2007, permalink Desktop Tools


I saw a free screensaver listed in Mark's CoolSitesNewsletter this week. I'm always suspicious of free screensavers so I couldn't resist checking these out.


So far, I've tried two of the screensavers listed on the page and they are clean, very simple, but also very nice. I can't say more about the software or the website because they are a mystery.


Living Mountain Waterfall 1.0

Free Living Waterfall v1.0


There is no author's info in the screensavers, and the website is registered by an identity protection service so that you can't see who is really behind it all.


Whenever you find or go searching for free screensavers, always use extreme caution. Try to make sure the website that is hosting them is safe. You should also make sure your PC is backed up before installing a new screensaver.


I used SiteAdvisor to check out the site, but it hasn't been tested yet. Scandoo.com also does not have any information on it yet. Before installing, I backed up all of my registry settings with EruntRegistryBackup. I sometimes also use TotalUninstall to install these as well. Afterwards, I scanned my PC with AdAware and BitDefenderRootkitUncover. I always have WinPatrol running in the background to let me know if a new program is acting suspicious.


I can't recommend anything at the website yet. There are too many unknowns to give them any real trust.
