    What do you want it to do? Making a school logo bounce around the screen like winlogon.scr does is easy.

    I think you can use Flash to compile screensavers, can't you? If you already have a license for Flash then that's effectively free.

    Irfanview is perfect (and free) if all you want is an image slideshow.

    well I was using Xara Screensaver Maker and also 2D 3D Screensaver Maker but they are not free options, I will try Galway's choice.

    You can make anything a screen saver like an exe or something. You just have to rename the extension to .scr I think. Something along those lines anyway.

    You can load your own textures into the preset screensavers.

    Choose Display properties > Screen saver > 3D Flying objects > Settings > Style > textured flag > Texture. Then load the image of your school logo as a bitmap.

    Not sure how you roll this out to all of the other pc's though.

    Indeed. One can have lots of fun with this (e.g. change logon screensaver to cmd.exe) but that's probably not what you're after, ahem
