CNET Editors' review
Computer Screensaver is a basic screensaver that allows users to select from several designs and a handful of options. Although the program has a few potentially useful features, we didn't find much to be impressed with.
Although the publisher's description says the program includes five screensavers, it looks to us like there are only four, and that's counting the one that is nothing but a black screen with white text scrolling across it. Two of the others contain uninteresting abstract designs, while the fourth is a field of stars. The program's interface is fairly straightforward, although users will need to be careful to always click Apply, even when previewing changes. The program's features are mediocre. Users can potentially add music, but we couldn't get this feature to function; the program kept telling us there were no recognizable music files in the folder we selected, even though we use this folder of music all the time to test these sorts of applications. Users have the option of setting the program to start automatically every 20 to 200 minutes and run for 1 to 20 minutes, reminding users to take a break from working, which is nice. But even basic screensaver functions, such as being able to select which actions exit the screensaver, were missing; users can only exit this screensaver by pressing F8. The program also lacks a Help file.
Computer Screensaver has a 10-day trial period. It installs desktop icons without asking and leaves a Start Menu item behind upon removal. We do not recommend this program; there are many better screensavers available for free.
