Will the Live! Screensaver allow viruses or unwanted third parties onto my PC?

No. The screensaver operates in the same way as an Internet browser. It requests images from a server on the Internet on a regular basis. The images are not sent to your computer by a server trying to connect to your machine from the Internet.

Why do the images not display correctly on my PC?

The Live! Screensaver has been designed for computers using a minimum display resolution of 1024x768 pixels.  You can check the display resolution of your PC by opening the Display control panel and selecting the Settings tab.
If the 15-second animated slides do not display correctly on your machine, you may need to update your version of Flash Player. Visit for more information.

No. Unfortunately, there is not a Mac version of the Live! Screensaver at present.

How can I uninstall the Live! Screensaver?

We hope that you won’t want to uninstall the Live! Screensaver but if you do, the easiest way to do so is to re-run the Live! Screensaver installer which will detect your current installation and offer you the option to remove.
