Mine is pretty basic, but effective. I use the Windows Live Photo Gallery screensaver, and it randomly shuffles through my 1,500+ wallpaper images.

How about running a video as screen saver. Here is how:

In Windows 7 you have to go via Windows Live Photo Gallery. If you do not have it yet on your system, download it from Windows Live Essentials http://download.live.com/?wa=wsignin1.0

Then do the following steps:

· Open Live Essentials Photo Gallery
· Click on File
· Click on > Screen Saver Settings (This will open the Screen Saver Settings)
· Browse to your folder with the video and open it (OK)
· In the Use this theme list box, select Album
· Then do Save
· Now run Preview and see whether it works

Remind you that the video format must be .wmv. If you have another format, convert it with Format factory http://www.formatoz.com/

Nah...
I remember that I used a cool screen saver that makes your screen look like a puddle.
With rain drops and everything

Can someone look it up for me?
