Hey, cool... I was intrigued about the screensaver, so I googled it and found the link from the "ultimatecar" forum, or something like that.

After that, you can access it as usual by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing Screen Saver from the Properties menu, and there will be Mercedes among with all others.

Hope this helps
Looks like someone has more time on their hands than I do

Thanks for getting it to work, Chris.

I have to find the time...I recently bought my first Mercedes...and I am very pleased with it, although I have to make up for the lack of knowledge concerning my car and Mercedes in general. But I was always a fan and the only name that stuck with me when I looked for a car know...

As for the screensaver, glad you found it useful. I stumbled upon this thread a couple of days ago and remembered I have managed to "fix" the same screensaver a few years back.

And thank you, JayHawk and Venezzia, for sharing the screensavers with us. If anyone has other Merc screensavers, I think I can speak for all of us in saying we would really appreciate you sharing them.

A few years ago I obtained an S Class screensaver that showed my local weather as well as scenery that changed as the time of day changed. At night there was the moon, in the day the sun was in the correct position. This screensaver now throws off Swflash.ocx errors as it was built a few years ago. Does anyone know how to obtain an updated version?
