Ronald Reagan Remembrance Screensaver (You're Going to want this on your PC)
Rhode Island Soft Systems via CNet's download.com ^ | June 9, 2004

The former President is gone, but now you can honor him on your desktop. This commemorative screensaver offers a collection of images from the life and times of The Great Communicator.

Our Ronald Reagan Remembered Tribute screensaver is a compilation of 22 images that encapsulate his life, his career, and his presidency. Inspired by the some of his most famous quotes and speeches, RI Soft Systems arranged the photos in this screensaver to pay tribute to his lifetime accomplishments.

Ronald Reagan Remembered Screensaver Screensaver Copyright © 2004 RI Soft Systems. All Rights Reserved. Photos provided by United Press International.

Our Ronald Reagan Remembered screensaver is a compilation of images captured throughout his life, his career, and his presidency. Ronald Reagan championed four "Pillars of Freedom": individual liberty, economic opportunity, global democracy and national pride. Reagan won a solid following among moderate middle-class and working class Americans, many of whom had formally supported the Democratic Party. He won their support by asserting that the Federal Government imposed excessive taxation and had become too large and overbearing. The inspirational photos depicted in this screensaver are provided courtesy of United Press International in Washington, D.C. These images are for your own personal use only, and any other commercial use or re-publication is prohibited.

This screensaver is brought to you through a unique cooperative effort between RI Soft Systems, United Press International, and CNET.

Our Ronald Reagan Remembered screensaver is FREE to download. You may also link or otherwise redistribute the original download file (reagan.exe), provided that this file is not modified in any way, and that no fee is ever charged.

Way cool way to show your reverence for President Reagan.

Set it up to run at work and see how many of your coworkers ask you where you got it. Drive your liberal cube mate nuts. :)

Sorry, but I would be extremely cautious downloading and installing ANY screen saver off the Web.

Screen savers as innocent as they sound are programs that are running on your computer once installed. That running program has full access to your computer and could do virtually anything with your data and/or key strokes.

Be careful.

Stuff from CNET is safe. I downloaded it and it comes up clean when scanned for viruses.

I use a Mac and this would be a great one to have to shove in the face of the liberal unwashed masses that mostly use Macs. Maybe I'll get my lazy butt and make one myself.

Just because something doesn't contain a known virus doesn't mean it isn't dangerous. The odds are in your favor considering the source. But it isn't risk free.

it may be clean of viri, but that doesnt mean that it is clean from trojans or tracking software. to be really safe, you should probably get ahold of a copy of ad-aware and a copy of spybot search and destroy. both are free and both are easily found on google.

cool screensaver in any event.

Don't worry, I never installed it. I don't run a screen saver on my computer as they have a nasty habit of interfering with some of my other programs.

I actually have a much better anti-spyware program called SpywareZapper. I got some crap from the newest version of AIM a while back and AdAware and Spybot didn't get rid of it. This program did and I've found it is better than either one. Of course it does cost $30.

My son just sent this to me .. it's really, really awesome.

It shows all those wonderful statements of Reagans - I'm hoping to memorize them and use them to counter some of the liberal junk.

My son is a computer guy - for a living - he would never send a link to me that was not safe.

Yikes. I downloaded it to my desktop, but haven't installed it yet.

Guess I'll pitch it in the recycle bin. :^(

Suit yourself! Nobody's forcing you to use it. I currently have it on my computer, and Norton didn't note anything wrong with it.

Or keep it and wait awhile and see what happens to the others. Then if nothing bad happens a month or so later try it...

That's a good idea. It's still on my desktop, marked with today's date and FR thread 1152250. That way I can come back here and see if anyone reports any bad things with this screen saver.

Have a great Sunday !

Unless you consider Micromedia's Flash player s/w to be spyware (annoyance-ware perhaps :)

I've been running it on my system for a couple of days and I downloaded on flyer's system and demoed it at the Houston FReeper meet and greet honoring JimRob.

Rather annoying when some uninformed posters start an unsubstantiated rumor with a careless post and everyone assumes it must be true. The screen saver is linked off of C|Net's download.com main page.

Take your tin-foil "PC expert" hat elsewhere. The screen saver is not spyware.

It is one thing to provide warnings of known hazards, it is entirely different to yell fire in a crowded theater for kicks.

I didn't say it was smartass.

I said it was dangerous in general to download screen savers from the Web. And it is. Many people don't know that screen savers are actual programs (instead of just pictures) and when you install one that the program is being given complete access to your computer to do as it will.

Didn't someone say: "Trust - but verify"? Still applies.
