Hi, first I am no computer whiz and my jargon is not up to par.

I did have the software tech at work customize my notebook so that when I was away from it there was something moving on the screen.
I happen to like fish so I purchased the marine one.

I tried installing it once and obviously did not know what I was doing as it would not stay on long and I had to numerous times hit a key on the keyboard to get back to the work I was doing.

I was wondering if a member could do a brief description of what I have to do to rid of the current screen saver and what adjustments I have to make to install the new cd of the Aquarium.

I would also like to know what settings have to be used.

The last time I installed it, it was like the blind leading the blind and I didn't like the fact that I had to repeatedly hit any button several times to deactivate it as I don't have to do that wit this Windows one that I have in current use???
I know that I must be doing something wrong.

If a member could describe what I should do in short brief points and advise what is the optimum settings and where I find them I would greatly appreciate it.

Evidently the time for the screensaver to 'kick in' is way too short. Assuming you are using Windows XP, right-click on an empty part of the Desktop and choose 'Properties'.
Now click on the 'Screensaver' tab.
Make sure your preferred screensaver is selected and showing in the drop-down list box.
Where it says "Wait", this is where you select the amount of idle time that has to elapse before that sceensaver will run.
