    Enjoy an animated Halloween Adventure with this free screen saver.

The Halloween Adventure screensaver would add a touch of class to any Halloween party.

This freebie presents five beautifully animated scenes--a haunted castle, a spooky forest, a moody Halloween sky, a giant spiderweb, and more--all carefully rendered. The colors are rich and the animations are smooth. In the background, witches cackle, chains rattle, owls hoot, wolves howl, and ghosts moan. The sound effects are subtle and well-placed, not overdone.

Halloween Adventure is terrific for adults and older children alike, and would add great atmosphere to a Halloween gathering. Since the download is free, you could run it on every computer in the house.

Note: This screen saver is free. The installation program offers different versions of a Screensavers Toolbar; be sure to deselect those checkboxes before proceeding with the installation.
