With most of these screensavers, if you go to the website, you can get the same screen saver for Windows 3.1, or for Windows 95/98.

Office Maid is a screen saver that is a trip. It runs one small picture in the center of the screen that kinda plays “pong” with itself, just bouncing back and forth. After that it cruises your hard drive taking note of all the .bmp files you have. [I had no idea I had 1468 .bmps!] These are what it runs in the background. it uses everything though-I saw the credit pages to a game go by, all kind of things. You can change the sound files that accompany it, and much more in settings.

The program also comes with Saverviser, which is a separate program, [and must be registered as such] and is a screen saver and wallpaper manager. You can set up your wallpaper to change to the current screensaver, or to change at a certain time by itself.

Amazing Lakes also comes with a task scheduler, and a message function, which can be accessed without turning off your screen saver, so people can leave you messages while you are away. Check this one out, you might get a kick out of it!
