Again, this works on my computer but I have tried it repeatedly on my sister's computer and it will not remove the desktop image from the bubbles screensaver.
My sister's computer is not available to me at this time so I am unable to send any screenshots.

It appears that the hex/decimal option is working just fine then.

For now, use OPTION ONE to reset the settings to default, and try one more time to see if it may have just been some missed mistake.

I did what you suggested. I started from the beginning and now bubbles are on a black background.
Thanks

OK guys, you just made my Wifes day. THANKS

My wife is less technical than a cat cause our old cat, liked to walk on my KBs or chase Cursors.

She on the other hand, will not touch a computer. That is 'mans' work to her so that means me.

We were looking for a Fench tutor, we stopped for a minute and magically BUBBLES appears on my 40" screen and she screamed with delight as she loves BUBBLES. BOUNCING AROUND, CHANGING COLORS,.....

At her [mine too] age, it is nice to see her get excited.

WHO ever, WHAT ever put the BUBBLES on my screen,

THANK YOU.

I know that it has been awhile since this thread was created. Firstly I want to Thank Shawn for this tut. Outstanding contribution.
Secondly, do you know if there is a key that can be created which would change the location of where the bubbles spawn on the screen (presently bottom left)?

You're most welcome Reido. I'm afraid that I'm not aware of a setting for that.

here is another way:

Download this version of the bubbles screensaver and install it
Download flow Bubbles screensaver
With this you get the settings in the standard-screensaver-options-window and more optiomns then the standard bubbles screensaver has got.
For example you can put your own pictures into the bubbles.
I fliied them with self drawn Kites

More options for Bubbles

There are a couple more options available in the registry for Bubbles.scr, at least on Windows 7 Pro.

TurbulenceSpeed also affects how quickly the colors change. TurbulenceNumOctaves controls how colors are distributed on the screen, but TurbulenceSpeed controls how fast the colors shift across the screen. (This is most noticeable with a screen well packed with little bubbles.) TurbulenceSpeed = 1000000000 means a bubble that's stationary or barely moving will change color very slowly; TurbulenceSpeed = 2000000000 means a stationary bubble will change quite rapidly.

TurbulenceForce is more interesting; this seems to represent how strong the "wind" is on your screen. Normal values seem to range from 1000000000 to perhaps 1250000000. 1000000000 means no turbulence; bubbles move inertially, in straight lines until they hit something. 1100000000 gives very slight turbulence, not really noticeable but enough to keep the pattern changing. 1150000000 gives noticeable turbulence; the screen starts to look as if small gusts of wind are batting the bubbles about. 1200000000 gives strong turbulence, with whirls of bubbles whipping about all over the place. (Higher values may give a stronger effect; I can't judge.)

Two other values: TurbulenceForce = 0 causes all bubbles to be gray, with straight-line motion. TurbulenceForce from about 500000000 to 900000000 again gives straight-line movement but bubbles are light blue, occasionally turning gray.
