underwater screensaver

  jbaker65 11:44 08 Mar 2006

I recently upgraded from Win 98se to Win XP Pro.
When I went to set my screensaver to 'underwater' I was surprised to find it does not exist. Could anyone still using Win98se please copy 'underwater.scr' and send it to me via eMail as I really like using this screensaver. Thanks in advance.

Just looked on google, you can download a free screensaver from aquatica click here with waterworlds, fish etc.

The google page, which list many more waterbased screensavers is at click here

Hope this helps.

Thanks Vinny. I've seen that one and it carries a certain amount of undesirables with it. The Microsoft one is simple and only needs to be put into the system32 file. Thanks anyway.

just had a look cannot find it on a win 98se disc

surfmonkey, You're right if you search the win98 disc (which I still have) nothing comes up but if you are running win98se and do a search for underwater.scr then it can be found and copied. Strange isn't it?
