Just use a Docked PictureBox with SizeMode set to Zoom in a Maximized Borderless Form and change the Image in the PictureBox using a Timer...

What version C# are you using?
Are all of the images in the same folder?

Details, details, details...

ok...here are the requirements.

images are remote:  in other places.  I think he plans on using http.
If image does not exist, then move on to next image.
XML file used to list them out.

Must be able to have password protect if desired prior to going back to work from moving the mouse during the screen saver

oh...and I haven't started yet.
So, I can use what I want....but I think I'll stick with .NET 2.0 becuase it has to be XP  through 7 compatible.
