    Something like this?

    PresentationPoint | MessagePoint free PowerPoint screensaver

    Not tested it yet, but seems promising as I'm wanting to have something a little more interesting than a Marquee with the school name .. lol ..

    hmmmmm, ive create a flash file and converted to scr, then put it in a network share and it works. The only problem now is students cant access the \\server due to GPO settings... looks like a long afternoon trailing through policies.

    When i created my schools screensaver i wrote a batch file that copies it down to the local machine in the folder where all the others are (cant remember where it is now!) and then edited the registry to change the default screensaver to that one.
