*  When only a few of the virus scanners detect a problem with a file, this usually indicates a false alarm. While we simply cannot guarantee the safety of any file for 100%, we review them all carefully and report false positives to the anti-virus companies.

Mesmerizing. That's the word that comes to mind when I first saw it in motion on my monitor. The pictures don't do it justice - you have to see it in motion.

Cool

Helios looks good in the thumbnails, but they don't do it justice. When you see it on your monitor, the motions and color changes are mesmerizing. Really beautiful.

It works perfectly in Windows 10. I unzipped the file, and moved it to C:/Windows/System 32. In my version of Windows 10, the settings are accessed by going to Start, Settings, Personalization, Lock Screen, then, at the bottom of the page, Screen saver settings.

We may no longer NEED screen savers, but that doesn't mean we don't WANT them. :o)
