    I have not downloaded this myself, but there is a free downloadable octopus theme (for XP, I think) available here:

    EDIT: Link deleted by tonmo, apparently this is doing unwanted things to people's computers.

    Looks very colourful! And here is a downloadable startup screen featuring a painting of Architeuthis:

    EDIT: tonmo deleted this one too :)

    If anyone is wondering, I'm just pointing these out and can make no guarantees that they will work.

    I can't open the link. I went in to check out the screen savers/wallpaper and had something pop up on my desktop, even without downloading anything. I did a search on explorer for Hotbar and two files came up which I deleted. Hope I deleted the right thing :shock: !!

    Do you think I got it by what I did? Or do I need to do the uninstaller?

    use the uninstaller on your os if it is there otherwise definately use their unistaller if you can still see it.

    Apologies to have caused you all problems with those links. Maybe I should have tried them first before I posted them. Then again, reading your messages I'm quite glad I didn't!

    Anyway, BOE's hermit crab photos make much better wallpaper anyway.
