A Halloween Screensaver That Will Make Your Skin Crawl


To commemorate Halloween and promote Web safety, SiteAdvisor highlights a spooky download alert for the season. Out of all the scary Web safety threats that haunt the Internet’s creepiest corners, “Happy Halloween Animated Screensaver” earns a dishonorable 10 out of 10 on the SiteAdvisor nuisance meter.

This screensaver is hosted at topdesktop.com (SA Report Page), which SiteAdvisor’s tests showed to have 2131 red downloads as of October 31st. If little Timmy instinctively clicked “Yes” or “Install” at every installation prompt, your computer would be overwhelmed by potentially unwanted programs.
