4 Restart the computer.


Why is my screensaver so slow?
You probably just need to update your graphics driver as described in the previous answer. If that doesn't work, it probably means that your computer is an antique and should be replaced by a modern one. Any current computer should run these savers at a tolerable frame rate if not better. Some of these screensavers are very demanding of your CPU and graphics card, and they will perform best on a good gaming computer. Laptops--especially netbooks--are often too underpowered to run these savers smoothly.


How to manually start a screensaver?
Windows XP
1.Start CONTROL PANEL (generally found under SETTINGS on START menu).
2. Select DISPLAY.
3. Select SCREEN SAVER tab.
4. Select the PREVIEW button (or change the WAIT time to 1 minute and wait). If you use mouse, be careful not to move mouse afterward or screensaver will stop right away. (Besides using the mouse, you can use the TAB key to move the highlighted/box area to the PREVIEW button and then press the ENTER key.) When done viewing screensaver, just move your mouse. It is very important to exit this window when you are finished.
Windows Vista and Windows 7

1.Start CONTROL PANEL (generally on START menu).
2. Click APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION.
3. Click CHANGE SCREENSAVER (found under PERSONALIZATION.
4. Select the PREVIEW button (or change the WAIT time to 1 minute and wait). If you use mouse, be careful not to move mouse afterward or screensaver will stop right away. (Besides using the mouse, you can use the TAB key to move the highlighted/box area to the PREVIEW button and then press the ENTER key.) When done viewing screensaver, just move your mouse. It is very important to exit this window when you are finished.


How can I capture the images that the screen savers generate?
You can just press the "Print Screen" key and this will copy the image to the clipboard. From here, you can paste the image into your favorite image processing application and save/edit it.


What is your official upgrade policy?
You will get latest versions and bug fixes for free forever!


Why does my screensaver not work?
There are things you can try. Normally an Anti-virus or firewall wouldn't prevent a screensaver from starting. If it did, then it would also wake up the computer from the screen saver at some point. So I don't see Nortons Av or Windows Firewall doing this. But you could disable each one at a time, and try them. But make sure if you are disabling the firewall that you are not connected to the internet.

Also, boot up your computer into Safe Mode and try your screen saver there. The Norton's and Firewall are not disabled by starting in Safe Mode, but other background processes are, and you may be able to pin this down to a background process.

If so, (ie if the screen saver works after 10 minutes in Safe Mode), then it could be a laborious process of disabling running processes one at a time and seeing which one is stopping the screen saver.

Why does my screensaver not work on windows 7 64 bit?
Some mouses and keyboard have a thing called HID and it stops auto screensaver. Please uninstall the HID-compliant device in Device Manager. To get the screen saver and power options to work while a wireless mouse or keyboard is plugged in, do the following:

Go to All Programs , then to Windows Update . Then download updates if needed. Then click on the link "Review optional updates ". Then from these optional updates, probably around 48, select "Microsoft HID non-user input data filter ". Install this update. Once done, the screen saver and power options will function normally even while a wireless mouse is connected to the laptop.

My registration code doesn't seem to work, what should I do?
First: Please uninstall the demo version before installing the unlimited version.
Second: If you copy and paste the registration code from your Purchase Order confirmation email into the Number field, you may inadvertently introduce an extra character or space. Make sure that you've entered all your information exactly as specified in your email.
Please be sure you enter it as it is. The easiest way to enter your registration code correctly is to copy and paste it to the registration dialog and DON'T type it manually because it's difficult to distinguish the letter "l" (lower case of "L") from "1" (one) and "o" from "0" (zero), etc.
