Beware of Screensavers

Reading about the "goodies" bundled with the "PuppyScreenSaver.exe" screensaver reported last week at Hosts News serves as a good reminder with the rapidly approaching Holiday season. Think twice before downloading and installing Holiday screensavers and cursors.

Unless you are absolutely certain the site is reputable and have scanned the file before installing it, don't be surprised if you get more than you bargained for. Take a look at the scan results from just one file from "PuppyScreenSaver" and use a family picture instead. Your computer will thank you.
