I take it you want a free program? If so, take a look at  Flash Screensaver Creator here:
http://www.visual-mp3.com/review/11143.html

If you're willing to pay a small fee (but you can trial it first if you want), then look at the ones you can get from here:

MyScreensaver gets a fair amount of attention as being a popular "screensaver maker"

If anyone knows of a real free option Id be interested to know.

Most otf the free ones, such as the junglemetal one above are actually either trials only, or they splash unregistered over them.

Why these people think people will pay for a screensaver creator baffles me.....

Plusone, according to EE rules, and to be fair to everyone....unless you are contributing to the author's question, you need to open a new thread for questions of your own. Thanks for your understanding.
