I am SO glad you are back at it!!!

Like many other users here, I have been running this for about 15 years. It was my only screensaver on all my computers until Flash went away! I'm an IT professional, and before I worked from home, I used to love it when people asked me if I was really monitoring something! I had a lot of fun with that, as I am sure you can imagine.

I can't wait until the release of the new screensaver. However, there are a couple of questions/requests if they don't delay the initial release. If so, maybe you will consider them in future releases.

1. On my personal computer, my Mute setting was persistent. My company forces the screensaver with Group Policy, and my System47 would not stay muted. It may have been due to Flash and/or the change from Shockwave to Adobe, but I hope the new release will resolve this.
2. I doubt the "clickable areas" would work with the screensaver, but please retain the clock if you can. That is a fantastic addition.
3. Windows weather would be another fantastic addition and would add to the realism of the monitoring theme.
4. You could also include other PC stats (CPU, Memory, Temp, etc.) if that is possible.

Sorry for all the suggestions. I am not a programmer and have no idea if any of that is doable. I just wanted to chime in and tell you how glad I am to see this refreshed!

Do you have an ETA for the screensaver release?

Thanks so much!

So good to see you back at it.

I've been using system47's screensaver for 13 years until Flash hit EOL. I'm very happy to see it revived, revamped, and reworked. It's so going to be the de facto once again. --keijo

System47 2.5.01 not installable as Windows Screensaver in Windows 7

I replaced my beloved System47 2.2 by 2.5.01 big grin but have a problem (Win 7):
the "system47 v2.5.01.exe starts when clicked, no problem so far
but I cannot find an entry in the Windows 7 display properties oh .

I renamed the .exe to .scr and moved in into folder C:Windows,
so System47 shows in the display properties and can be started (Preview)
but it starts in windowed mode, not in full screen.

I can change the setting after System47 2.5.01 was started
but it doesn't remember the fullscreen setting.

So is there any parameter or trick to get the 2.5.01 version
as a Win 7 fullscreen screensaver when it starts ?


Hi Kevi, the current release is a "viewer" program for Windows, not a screensaver program. This viewer program is just an executable file (with .exe extension) and no installation required. It is portable. Oh, the "full screen" mode setting is per session only, it won't remember this setting the next time you run it. Though you did bring up a good idea. I will change this behavior in the next update. As for the screensaver program, I am still running tests. It will be out soon. Please be patient and check back here again later. Thanks for your comments! smile

This program is compromised

You have malware on this site. My antivirus picked it up when trying to install. Please resolve.


The program has been tested and passed virus scan check on Kaspersky and on before its release. Also, there's no installation for the Viewer Program. The program is portable.
Could you please provide more info on which antivirus software you used and what the reported thread was. It could be a false positive due to that the program is not digitally signed.

Can someone bring this awesome screensaver back to life?

@Gruppa you might have flash (still) installed and not know it. I specifically uninstalled Flash when it hit "end of life" and now System47 only show a white screen with a box in the middle that has the Flash "f" and the information "i" circle. THAT's what I (and everyone else reporting this) is "on about".

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Kyle! 47 has been my go-to screensaver since it first was released. I can't live without it.
