Hi Everyone; Just a few questions about Screensavers

1) If a game has a screensaver and I or the game decides to install it, how will I remove it? is it as simple as deleting the .SCR file in \WINDOWS\system32?

2) What is the Avast! Antivirus Screensaver used for?

Thanks:thanks:thanks:thanks:thanks:thanks

1) Yes, most probably. It prob doesn't take up much room, so why not keep it there?

2) IIRC its not really a screensaver, it just scans your PC or something when the PCs idle

The avast Screen saver allows Avast to display any alerts when scanning and if your screen saver is running at the same time.


It's not really a screen saver but an overlay that adds virus scanning while your chosen screen saver is running.



Some Antivirus software will not run if a screen saver is also running.

Um WT....


A special screen-saver is also provided, that, when running, performs virus scanning. avast! antivirus works together with your favorite screen-saver, so you don't have to change your personal settings to use it.
