The Ultimate Cary Grant
(Available for 32 bit Windows
/ Tested on Windows
95/ 98 and Windows NT4)
Well, here it is at last. Three Cary Grant screen savers in one! If you
choose to download and install this screensaver, you can have the choice
- Drifter - An image of Cary drifts
aimlessly about your screen. You have the choice of 5 images, and can
set the speed at which he moves. You can also decide whether to
display a "trail" of where the image has been!
- Still & Quote - Images from 10 of
Cary's movies appear in the centre of the screen with a quote from that
movie displayed below the image. You can also choose to display the
movie title, studio and year, and can set the duration for which each
image is displayed.
- Flasher - Images (selected randomly from
a pool of 25 Cary pictures) flash up at random positions on your screen.
You can select the speed at which they appear.
These instructions can also be found in
the Readme.txt file which is included in the CGSaver.Zip
1. Download the CGSaver.Zip file. There are two versions
as described below. If you are not sure which to download, I suggest the
larger one - sorry!
1. Unzip the CGSaver.Zip file to a temporary
folder/directory, you can delete this directory and any files in it
after you have installed the screen saver. To unzip the file you will
need an "Unzip" program. If you don't have one, download WinZip from
The small one, CGSavers.Zip (497KB): Includes only
the screensaver file and a readme file. You will need to have a file
called MSVBVM50.DLL installed in your windows\system directory in
order for the screensaver to work once installed.
The large one, CGSaverl.Zip (1.15MB): Includes the
screensaver file, a readme file and the MSVBVM50.DLL file mentioned
2. Copy the file(s) from the temporary file to your system
directory. This will usually be C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM. (You could now delete the temporary directory if you are sure you
have done everything up to this point correctly - otherwise wait until
you have seen the screensaver run!).
3. Finally, you should make the Ultimate Cary Grant
Screensaver your current screen saver. To do this, select Settings from
the Start Menu, and then
choose Control Panel.
Double-click on the Display icon. Click the Screen Saver tab at the top. Part of the screen will now look
like that shown below. You now need to select the screen saver you
- Select the appropriate screen saver (Ultimate Cary Grant)
- Choose Preview to see it run.
- Choose Settings to be taken to the Setup box for the
Ultimate Cary Grant ScreenSaver where you can choose which of the
three you want to run, and configure them.
- Set the Wait time (the time your system is idle before
the screensaver comes on) Choose OK (At the bottom of the dialog box).
