    I have been using the aquarium screen saver for a while now, but over the past couple of days everything has been moving around slowly (fish).
    Any Ideas please.

    got any resources hogging the memory up in the background lately?
    virus scanners, system restore doing its job ... that kind of thing?
    sounds like something heavy is taking up the memory making the fishes only move when it can slip into some memory

    the basic no-nags screensaver comes with MS Plus! pack XP.
    I think there was a download in the downloads section
    otherwise its www.serenescreen.com

    Just a suggestion if I may - screensavers use system resources and are absolutely unnecessary with today's displays. It's much better to set your display (and HD) to power down after a period of idle time.

    That slow down happened to me after I updated my video
    card driver once. The next time I updated the driver, every
    thing went back to normal. Very strange.

    THE AQUA (FISH) SCREENSAVER THAT COME IN THE PLUS PACKAGE ONLY HAS 3 FISH AND NEEDS TO BE REGISTERED TO GET THE FULL 7 FISH(THINKS IT 7 OR MORE)AND THAT COST $$$OR£££ SO DOWNLOAD IT FROM MPRPEUS OR AS THEY ARE UPGRADING AND HAVING PROBLEMS USE KAZAA(SEARCH UNDER SOFTWARE AND SELECT CATAGORY TAB AND THEN DESKTOP ENHANCMENTS

    Morphous

    Forget Morphous. I used to use Morphous untill they updated to the new version, which was a big step backwards.
    Try using imesh. Exactly the same as Morphous but alot more reliable and all-roung far better than Morphous.
    Heaps of good D/Ls.
