MSN Rainy Day

The Rainy Day animated screensaver features a windowpane, viewed from the inside of a brick house, with raindrops hitting the glass on the other side and silhouettes of people (and their pets) walking by. Two candles and a candle lantern stand on the windowsill and are lit one at a time by a flying fairy. The sound of falling rain plays in the background.

It need to be updated for the latest version of macOS

When I had attempted to install this screen saver, I got the prompt: "Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized app from starting. Running this app might put your PC at risk".

Update: Just read the issue, regarding the MS SmartScan fix -- the screen saver works.

How can I get these screensavers to my Mac OS 11 Big Sur?
Really nice screensavers, but doesn't work with the latest update which is so sad...

I love this screensaver. I had it a long time ago on my laptop and after a reload lost it. I couldn't find it online after that. Fast forward to me thinking about the screensaver today and here it is. It is as wonderful as when I originally had it. I love it because I find the sound of the rain quite soothing. The shadows of the people strolling by, while you are tucked up with candlelight is lovely :) Well done!

If the rating had only been affected by the perpetual "MSN" at the bottom of the screen, as well as the animations being as quick as they are, the motive taken into consideration, I would've given it a 4. I'm giving the worst rating because installing this screensaver removed all but 3 of the screensavers I already had (and mind you, they all came with Windows), not to mention that I can't uninstall it or locate it in any Windows sub-folder to get rid of it manually, so I guess I'm stuck with this now, until I can bother making a project out of getting rid of it...

It looks ok. Tried to mute sound but didn't work. Tried to turn the volume down but that didn't work either. Rain sound got annoying.
