  • Generic Company Place Holder Don't Touch My Computer Episode 2

The Don't Touch My Computer cartoon screen saver is cute and fun. A guy walks into an office, carrying a little dog. He sets the dog down and hangs up a sign ("Watchdog on Duty"), then exits the frame. The dog sits there, chases its tail, and scratches--until someone touches your keyboard or mouse. Then it goes into attack mode, jumping at the screen and barking. (Pressing Esc gets you out of the screen saver.) Installation was simple--just download the executable and click on it. Clicking Settings in Display Properties lets you silence the dog's barking (probably good to do in an office).

Don't Touch My Computer is free, but it's designed to get you to the vendor's Web site. The vendor's logo appears at the bottom right of the screen with a link to its online offerings--which include a news feed, astrological advice, and so on.
