    Resident graphics snob.

    And remember: Bad practices often become a trend, if not dealt with.

    It sounds like one of the adwares that was being repeatedly installed on my PC (in exactly the same fashion, albeit on Firefox). They were usually some kind of name like that with a deliberate misspelling. The adware itself isn't what you need to worry about, it's the little bugger in the background installing them. Take a look in MSConfig for any suspicious startup item, that's where I found the root cause. Unfortunately I couldn't find any way to actually get rid of it and had to reformat (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/foru...e-purge-adware), I wish you better luck than me.

    random,

    are you experiencing any PROBLEMS with your computer?
    or is "anything" at all strange going on that should not be happening, as you are used to it?
    is your computer slowing down?

    describe your problems?
    if none, usually, screen savers are rarely harmful but may come stock with adware
