Why would you think people don`t use their screensavers, everyone uses them.

I have been unable to download any new ones for months. It just goes in an endless cycle of adding to the downloads but it never actually does.

I checked my last 3 system images and it doesn't work there either. I have no idea how long it's been like this, as I only check for new ones very sporadically.

Are you using the "Open" or "Save" command? If you are using "Save", what is the default location? Try saving to a different location. It may be the folder selected is full...just a guess.

Screensavers are no longer needed to protect modern monitors from burn-in.

I'd turn screensaver off in Personalize and use the spectacular Win7 backgrounds in a slideshow. You can collect most of the national editions here and browse to them to Select All from Personalize>Desktop Background: 120 Original Windows 7 High Resolution Scenery Regional Wallpapers Free Download My Digital Life

even though there is no need for it its still fun to have one i go the simple route so if i am away from my computer i can take look and see what time it is as i walk by so timesaver is what it is called i enjoy it cuz its simple and i installed a fun font to keep it fresh to me lol

and if you have a nicer machine (mostly cuz these are pretty graphic intensive and will keep ur gpu churning while you are away ) these are pretty slick (lol) http://www.reallyslick.com/screensavers.html

Is there any website that you can download free screensavers from? I checked a few random sites from the Wallpaper sticky thread, but didn't see any? I don't really have anything in mind, just something that may catch my eye. Matt
