My System Specs

Default Good, free, screensaver making software?

I tried a couple free apps but they are pretty crappy. I know I'm asking a lot for free but I don't want to pay anything for this. Let me know what you have used that you like.

Well to answer my own question I found Instant Storm. it is a fantastic little tool that will convert a SWF file into an EXE (installable screensaver). So you do your animations in Flash or some other app that can create an SWF and use Instant Storm to convert it. You can even customize the installation dialog boxes which is great. Lots of options, works like a charm and it's free!

InstantStorm - a free Flash screensaver creator - turn your SWF files into a screensaver
