Okozo Desktop manages and installs free animated Flash and DirectX wallpaper apps on your desktop. The apps are simple and compact yet lively and entertaining. New wallpapers are being added all the time, but you can even create and share your own animations via Okozo's Web site.

There is quite a lot of downloading and installing to get to Okozo: First the download assistant, then the actual download, then installing Microsoft DirectX and Visual C++ as well as Flash player (ours was out of date) before installing the actual program. Of course, if you have some of that stuff already, the job will be quicker. We clicked Okozo's desktop icon, and a popup told us we needed the 64-bit version of Flash, so, we clicked the appropriate link, downloaded the new version of Flash, and the Okozo Intro wallpaper opened on our desktop with a notification that new wallpaper were available at the program's Web site. We right-clicked Okozo's system tray icon and selected Wallpapers, which brought up a sleek Windows-style interface displaying our single wallpaper. We clicked Wallpapers on this interface, and the Okozo Web site opened in our browser with a large selection of free wallpaper displayed as thumbnails. We merely had to click one, and then click the Download Now button on the animation's page. Okozo did the rest, installing the wallpaper before Firefox could even tell us the download had finished. We clicked Reload on the Okozo interface, and our animation appeared in the queue. We clicked Apply, and the wallpaper appeared on our desktop. That sounds like a lot, but it's very easy to use Okozo, once it's set up. The wallpaper seem to be in wide-screen format, which most users have these days, but there's no way to adjust the fit, even through Windows, so bear that in mind.

Okozo's animations range wide in subject and appearance, though there did seem to be an awful lot of clocks. If you don't like what you see, make your own, and then share it with others--it's easy with Okozo Desktop.

"Blatant intrusive ad ware."

August 28, 2012  |  By FredF112

 |  Version: Okozo Desktop 2.1.1

Pros

May work for some people perhaps, if you don't care about ad ware.

Cons

The ad ware in this program installed one shop online service junk and some other thing I clicked "do not install" on but it did it anyway.
I downloaded this program from its main site (okozo dot com/download) and it auto installed a somewhat hard to remove search bar and search engine within my firefox that was named "DefaultTab" I believe, which took me a while to find due to it's name being so generic.

Summary

The CNet downloader is awful as it installs in my computer for NO REASON WHATSOEVER, and isn't needed when I just want one or two programs and there is no alternate way to download the main program on this page.
I don't know if the cnet version installs the ad ware, probably not in order to get good reviews, but it's inexcusable for the ad ware on my computer, I had to roll back my system to fully get rid of it. Try something different is my suggestion, don't support money grubbers they aren't worth your computers health.
