I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First of all I do not know how to program in Visual C++.
Second I do not know what MFC is.

The whole point of me posting this question was to me to create a screensaver myself...not use a "Program" to help me make one.
Please explain.
