Hello Jhordnn, and welcome to Seven Forums.

All downloads here at Seven Forums are freely available even to non-members, so you should be able to download it without a problem normally.

Do you have any restrictions set on your computer that may not allow you to download it? For example, security program, you are part of a restricted domain, you are in a standard account that is restricted by Parental Controls, etc........

I'm glad I'm not the only one who missed this beautiful screen saver. One of the first things I did upon upgrade to seven was find it (elsewhere) and add it. Thanks for this tutorial, I'm sure others will be thrilled too.

Im the only user on my laptop...... I'll disable my net security but i downloaded the other screensavers the same way.

Oh and where do i go for help on a good antivirus software? I have COMODO, but i swear it has too much false positives. (Student in college, limited funds.)


UPDATE - The download worked. I dont wanna sound like a noob but i have no clue as to why it worked just now. Thanks!

You're welcome Jhordnn. I'm happy to hear that you got it downloaded.

A great free antivirus program is Avast Home Edition. You have to register to get a license key good for one year before having to register again, but it's completely free. In addition, running MSE with it is a good idea as well for extra safety. They are designed to work together without conflict.
