    thankyou red; i check those links, but my problem is something else. maybe one day i click to download this screen saver and i change my mind. but everyday is there at the bottom on the left side of my screen and no matter what i do always comeback. must be some way to ride off with this.

    chompi just go in control panel and disable OS update.

    No need for special software.

    angel: what happen when i disable OS update ? this SCREEN SAVER is not an update. i check combofix, but looks risky and besides i dont think is malware. just a company that want to force me to download his software and i dont know how to delete that download.

    force u to dload a software= usualy malware.
    combofix risk is if u have dvd emulator soft.. uninstall it.

    - winkey + r, type "msconfig", go to startup and uncheck app
    - delete shortcut from startup folder in startmenu
    - if none of above options work then install avira or equivalent antivirus to clean your system

    Follow these steps might this can help you:
    1. Go to start, then run.
    2. Type msconfig, press enter.
    3. Click startup services tab.
    4. Uncheck everything you are not willing have, which irritates you everytime.
