    Anyone have a website for screensavers that isn't loaded with spyware / adware?

    The company I work for makes these screensavers, and my department supports them. There is no adware/spyware, but you do have to install our toolbar.

    The toolbar includes a few of our products like Smiley Central, Cursor Mania, Zwinky and My Fun Cards.

    You just can't find a screensaver without having to download a bunch of virus's / toolbars.

    Toolbars are not viruses.

    Also, reputable screensaver providers wouldn't get much business if you were downloading viruses instead of screensavers.

    The word you might be looking for is adware, which generates advertisements that provide revenue for the company.

    DMN has Cowboy screensavers..

    As usual, they're just a pic of a player and a schedule.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Microsoft makes you download this searchbar called bing in their new update.

    You have absolutely no option not to get it with IE8.
