What is the difference between Wallpaper and Screensavers?

by Broná - 1/6/05 12:40 PM

Hi,
I'm new to Wallpapers and Screensavers can you tell me what the difference is please?

I want to put a favorite film star on my desktop ( i think i'm correct in saying as a screensaver )the photo is from an official website, i hope it is safe to download it to my desktop?

Thank you,
Bron

Safe downloads from ones that contain spyware, viruses, etc. Have your antivirus up to date and running.

Like I posted earlier, some photos just don't work well. Try resizing the one that is blurry and see if it works better. If not, try to find a different copy.

Yes i have AVG updated also Ad-Aware Spybot etc etc.

I was successful with the wallpaper, it looks fine. I've just been to the website to read their privacy policy, to be honest i don't understand it but it says they don't use cookies, all i know is that it is the official website. If it is best that i get rid of the wallpaper i won't be disapointed even though i am a big fan of Marilyn and NO i am not her age:):):)

Many thanks for your help with this i appreciate it.

Brona:)
