Where do you get your screen savers from?

Where do you get your screen savers from? I'm looking for some really cool screen savers that will go up to 1920 x 1080.

Thanks!

I use a video as a screensaver. That is cool.

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/

Try Deviantart.com, go to customization/wallpaper. Many categories to choose from.

Why didn't you just edit the Post you made a mistake on instead of posting another one?
