Sick of the bugs in your computer? Want to send them on a Sisyphean task? Download this screensaver and put them to work. These bugs hate disorder, and will spend their lives organizing dots on your screen. Just when they think they're finished, the dots scatter again.

Special thanks go to Jeff Lander for his articles in Game Developer magazine.

Download: The Spiders Screen Saver is zipped up here: SpidersSaver.zip (About 45 KB).

Requirements: Windows 95/98/NT/2000/Me/XP/Vista/7

Instructions: Extract the file "SpidersSaver.scr" into your Windows directory. It'll then become your currently selected screensaver.


Modern Windows Registry Hack: If SpidersSaver isn't using the settings you've configured, you can edit the registry values directly. The problem is that they're set at a full-name registry key, but read at a 8.3 registry key. They'll be here:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Spiders Screen Saver]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Spiders Screen Saver\SPIDER~1]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Spiders Screen Saver\SPIDER~1\Config]
