Editors' review

There's not a whole lot to New England Snow Screen Saver, but with a free screensaver, that's not a bad thing at all. Basically, you see a snow-covered house with lights in the windows and a wreath on the front door. Computer-generated snow dots fall as a MIDI version of "Greensleeves" plays. The only setting is the ability to turn the audio on or off. The installation is just as minimalist, displaying no license and asking little of the user. An unobtrusive plug on the settings window that promotes Screen Saver Studio Deluxe might explain why this free download contains no adware. New England Snow Screen Saver provides a restful screen refresher suited for home or office use.

    "All kind of Adware, Malware in download."

    December 12, 2013   |   By dromel

    Version: New England Snow Screen Saver 6.0

    Pros

    Haven't seen any.

    Cons

    Comodo and SpyBot went nuts with at least 3 "free" programs they deemed malware. in spite of the fact that I did a custom instal and opted out of everything listed.
    IF you intend to download this "free" screensaver, first set a restore point.

    Summary

    Not worth the trouble.

    Version: New England Snow Screen Saver 6.0

    Pros

    Easy to adjust and you can turn the music off. But, I like it when all of a sudden I hear the music, as it starts on my computer. Makes the home more festive.

    Cons

    I have NO cons on this one

    Summary

    If you want an easy, simple Christmas Screensaver, I highly recommend this one. Thank you CNET for your reviews on it and I appreciate the opportunity to tell about this one. Thank you again, it is wonderful. I trust CNET for all of my items, I want to add to my computer.

    "So Beautiful!"

    January 01, 2009   |   By joyceawagner

    Version: New England Snow Screen Saver 6.0

    Pros

    I had downlaoded this a couple of years ago and then lost it due to a hard drive crash. I'm so happy you still have it available. It is so peaceful to watch and so warm.

    Cons

    I find the music distracting even though it is very pretty.

    Summary

    I like it because it is a very peaceful screensaver to watch and gives me a warm feeling on a cold winter day.

    "It was Ok but I won't be using it"

    December 23, 2008   |   By TeaRoseMoon

    Version: New England Snow Screen Saver 6.0

    Pros

    Pretty background picture. Option to turn the music on or off. Completely Free. Easy to Uninstall.

    Cons

    animated snow isn't very good.

    Summary

    The background picture is really pretty, but the animated snow leaves something to be desired. Just little white squares falling down the screen. If you aren't going to go to the trouble to make the snow realistic, why not use snowflake shapes or at least round dots? At least it was easy to uninstall and was actually free, not one of these ones that say they are free but end up being a trial.
