Screensaver - ''Aquarium''

by Walt H / July 16, 2005 2:38 AM PDT

Both my neighbor and I have Win XP. On his system, there's screensaver called ''Aquarium'' (came with his system). It's a realistic looking bucnh of fish in an undersea setting. I don't have that on mine. Anyone know if the screensaver can be ''copied'' from one system to another? If so how?

are normally located in either the root Windows directory or in the System32 directory.

You can recognize them because they have an extension of .SCR.

HJaving said that, you need to be aware that some screensavers are not meant to be passed around and their copyright and license don't allow it. Others (not many) run as separate programs and actually require installing.

You can buy Plus! for XP

and it will have themes that install. One has the aquarium screen saver. There is also an aquarium screen saver you can buy online. Most of the shareware or trial versions have banner or nag messages on the screen. I'd be very careful downloading anything "free". It is usually loaded with spyware and other pests.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
