Wall Paper Screen Saver

I had a program on XP, I have no idea what the name of it was, but it allowed me to pick a folder of pictures, and then it would change my wallpaper every few seconds from that folder. this is NOT the regular screen saver.


Does anyone know of {safe, spyware free, malware free} software?


thanks.

What am I missing?
Windows 7 has a desktop changer. I have mine pointed to a Pictures folder and have it set to change every ten minutes.

Right-click desktop; choose Personalize; choose Desktop background; make your changes; done.

Well this is what I was looking for - I figured that Windows 7 had this, but I couldn't find it.

Nuon soft works pretty good, though.

I was not happy with WebShots.


thanks everyone.

There's also a few more that a lot of posters seem to like. Each has slightly different features, so enjoy browsing through them (and the others mentioned by the posters above) to see if you can find something that suits your needs:

MSN Wallpaper Manager - (Download MSN Wallpaper Manager) - MSN Wallpaper Manager from the Windows Live team lets you change your desktop wallpaper at regular interval or based on time (like at lunch, working hours, weekends, etc). MSN Wallpaper Manager automatically downloads wallpaper library in Background to provide refreshing wallpapers every day. You can also personalize by adding text, speech bubbles, graphics, + element 7 foreground images.
(The link above was thanks to swarfega!)

Automatic Wallpaper Changer (download: www.awc.smurphy.co.uk) and Any Wallpaper (download: www.anyutils.com/anywall.php) continuously change the desktop picture after a certain amount of time. Look at the page about automatically changing the desktop picture for more information about these tools.
