Hi Doc,

I'm not sure of what you mean? There's a list of ones you can modify in the related tutorials list in the tutorial if that's what you mean.

If not, then you can add free screen savers to install in Windows 7 from these links: WinCustomize: Screen Savers Gallery or 3Planesoft - Premium 3D Screensavers

Hello,

Nice Tut. I have one problem trying these effect. I don't have the bubbles folder in my registry. Sorry for the large photo I'm not very good at inserting images.

Hello Tyenot,

Doing OPTION ONE in the tutorial will restore the "Bubbles" key for you. Afterwards, you should be able to change the settings in OPTION TWO.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

This is great information! When I initially installed Win 7 I had the bubbles flaoting over our desktop, and we loved it. Mysteriously, after reinstalling most of our applications, the bubbles went back to the black background. I have tried the registery edits, and an HTML based GUI program, I even ran the zip found here to return to the defaults. I can change all parameters except the background, very frustrating as that is the only parameter I wanted to change in the first place.
Any suggestions? One thing I noted. In my regiistry under Bubbles there are Screen 1 and Screen 2. I have a dual screen card card, but am running only one monitor right now.

Hello NoTopo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Usually the background should be whatever it was when the screensaver is turned on with the bubbles floating over it as you descibed.

You might see if uninstalling anything that you installed since it was working properly to see if one of them may be the cause if the screen saver works properly after the progam was uninstalled.

You could also do a system restore using a restore point date when the screen saver worked properly, then start installing the programs one by one and test after each one to see if it still works or not.

Hope this may help,
Shawn
