Dangerous “Screensaver” Files

April 24th, 2015 Hannah

danger signMicrosoft is all for allowing their users to personalize screensavers. However, they’re also the first ones to tell you that downloading screensavers carry security risks since they may contain malicious software or spyware. Because of this, they have compiled a simple list of file types that users should be aware of in order to avoid downloading malware that are disguised as screensavers.

Listed below are the most common file name extensions and the type of file they carry, as listed in Microsoft’s help page:

1. .exe – executable program
2. .com – MS-DOS program
3. .pif – Shortcut to MS‑DOS program
4. .bat – Batch file
5. .scr – Screen saver file

If you find screensavers with file extensions such as the above, DO NOT download them. Make sure you always double check the extension because they can add a .jpeg or .png as part of the file name, before the actual file extension, in order to fool you into thinking that it is a simple photo file.

Keep your computer system secure by downloading screensavers the smart way.

A Detailed View of the Screensaver

April 9th, 2015 Ceasar

5.jpgLet’s take a more detailed look at the underlying architecture of screensaver programs. There are different types of programming languages and graphic interfaces that can be used to design and code a screensaver program. These tools are used together with DirectX, OpenGL or Graphics Device Interface in order to polish the final product. In Mac OS X, screensaver designers use the Quartz Extreme graphics layer. There is an indirect interface between the screensaver and the underlying operating system so a screensaver typically stops displaying images after a message from the operating system was received such as mouse movement or a pressed key.

Screen savers – Are they really saving your screens?

April 2nd, 2015 Ceasar

ScreenSaversScreen savers are relics of the days of old and are today quite irrelevant when it comes to saving power. Energy star rated products are already mandatory, capable of turning themselves off at pre-set intervals to prevent the old nemesis of the CRT tube, screen burn or phosphorus burn-in. The old problem of the screen getting imprinted with the most common image projected onto it by the electron gun.
Newer LCD displays do not suffer this problem though they can suffer from dead pixels or LED elements that burn-out prematurely due to faulty manufacturing procedures. This is expected though a few dead ones are hardly visible. Read the rest of this entry »

The Bubbles screensaver

March 26th, 2015 Ceasar


Windows always incorporates a number of screensavers for all of its operating system versions. And it’s no different for the new Windows 7 operating system.
What I find amusing is the Bubbles screensaver. I love that the bubbles just overlay itself on your existing screen so that you still see what you’re working on. My baby daughter loves the bubbles because she is also currently fascinated with real bubbles. She always asks to sit on my lap just to watch the bubbles bounce all over the screen. One other big fan of the bubbles screensaver is my ragdoll cat. He would jump up to my desk and try to catch the bubbles with his paws.

Purpose of Screen Saver

March 19th, 2015 Hannah

Screen savers are naturally known for simply providing that motion driven display in a computer which usually involves colorful combinations and at times, pictures of one’s choice. It is most of the time neglected that actually there is this important purpose of screen savers and it is to avoid the occurrence of “burning”. This burning occurs when a computer is left on display for some time which usually results to the weakening of the screen’s resolution. This problem eventually led to the invention and use of screen savers which are believed to somehow effectively prevent the damage of the resolution and worst, the system. Through these displays, computers are left idle. There is an easy procedure on how these screen savers can be activated and it is usually recommended that these are stimulated at the most 20 minutes of its idle time and nonetheless, these are now available in different designs to still give that beautiful and appealing look for one’s computer.

Lost Watch Screensaver

lostwatch.JPGOne of the most unique screensavers on the internet with a lost pocket watch dropping into a stream with it still working after years and years of nobody finding it. Watch the sunlight play around as it varys in position during the different times of the day. The realistic watch shows time even after years of neglect (might have an atomic battery that runs for a couple million years) and it doesn’t tarnish too unlike the real thing that disintigrates upon exposure to water. Watch as the pocketwatch ticks away sporting an old roman style numbering system. IT even has a second hand that moves as if it it were the real thing. For a taste of something unique try it out and download it from Cnet at his link.
