I can't trust it

Not to bash ya but I need some proof that your files aren't going to eat my OS if I give it admin permission

  • Hello Plum,

    It's good to be cautious! The only assurance we can offer is that each screensaver has been reviewed by an experienced editor and automatically scanned using a variety of reputable anti-virus programs. You're encouraged to verify the results using your own anti-virus program or an online service like VirusTotal.

    Not all screensavers require admin permissions. In fact it's usually the installation program that requires them, and that's because the screensaver will ideally be installed into the (protected) Windows folder on your hard drive.

    It's important to note that this doesn't mean the screensaver itself will run with administrator privileges, so it won't actually have permission to "eat [your] OS".

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
