Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone

           With the Halloween holiday fast approaching, I am interested in downloading and installing some Halloween screensavers onto my desktop running Windows 7.  I know this a straightforward and simple request which can likely be easily achieved by simply doing a Google search.  However, with the common problem associated with malware, I am somewhat hesitant about downloading any Halloween screensaver.  

             With respect to the type of Halloween screensaver of interest, I would like a clean download link or links for one with a haunted house, moving ghost, a flying witch, a full moon, and some rain mixed with thunder and lightening.   If someone could help me is this personal quest, it will be greatly appreciated.

              Thank you

              George

Hi George, try this first, rightclick your desktop>personalize>get more themes
these are Microsoft provided screensavers I just search on their screensaver site for Halloween , there not many yet
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/halloween-download-theme
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/search#q=Halloween+
You could grab a video or some images off Google images of Halloween  clicking on an image gives you all the sets and then you could visit page if it's a a screensaver offer or just click on view image, use different keywords in your google search then click on images
This the results in images for Halloween Screensavers Images

I used the trial  Ultra Screen saver Maker,  test it out, for 19 dollars you could keep it for many years and make your own.  it's wonderfully easy especially with video or Photos you can add music.
Download a couple of video off Youtube that have these in audio legally, They have given  permission to use them/
Youtube downloader pro and convert the video to audio only.

click on videos just on the left is a dark panel with videos to see how Ultra screensaver maker works

I agree with your security concerns also most of the stuff available is in the forms of Android apps.
What happened to windows?
attached is the one I made just as an example using images and some sounds off youtube, download demo off drop box and just click onit to test it
enjoy

Hello and Good Afternoon Merete

             Yes, the Halloween screensaver demo did play after I ran it.  Really nice too with all of the spooky background sound effects in addition to scary images.

              Thanks again

Great!! and that was very simple. cheers my friend hope you have a hoot over Halloween :)
NOTE:
If you consider that Ultra screensaver maker you need to purchase the Premium Ultra to get rid of the promotion over the top, I emailed them asking them why the two  cheaper versions even purchased still had them and felt it made buying them undesirable and as I I had promoted the 19 dollar version I wont do that again without warning folks/
They replied with a 15% discount offer. go figure.
