Screensavers for Security

There is a large number of programmed screensavers that may be configured to first ask for a password before allowing the user to continue with what he is doing. Perhaps providing security to your system is one of the most critical and significant roles of screensavers since it helps users in avoiding system infiltration that could possibly lead to leakage or stealing of confidential data. Users should not confuse the screensaver with the Windows Power Management Features because screensavers actually consume, if not waste, power while actively running on your system. It is recommended that you activate your screensaver for security purposes if you want to prevent other users from obtaining access to your system.

The Importance of Screensaver

December 10th, 2014 Ceasar

3.jpgThe screensaver industry underwent a huge booming stage during the time when most of the computer screens being used depended on CTR’s or cathode ray tubes. When an image is displayed for a long period of time on a CRT, the screen tends to permanently and gradually change. This leads to the common “ghost” image that appears on your old television set. With this sort of dilemma, the screensaver programs became popular because they helped avoid certain screen damages by consistently displaying images that change within periods of time during user inactivity. A screensaver may also activate certain background tasks such as distributed computing applications or virus scans that only uses small amounts of memory.

There are files that are ending with “.scr.” These are the screensavers themselves. Meaning, they are the programs that has created all of the amazing effects of the screensavers. For you to install “.scr” files, you have to right click on them and then choose “Install” from the list of available menu options. Once you have done this, Windows will now set the screensaver as default and will open the Display Properties dialog wherein the screensavers settings can be adjusted if you want to.

Of course you have to be careful where you keep the screensaver file. If you placed it in a temporary folder, then it is likely to be moved somewhere else or deleted.
