By default program should make itself as default screensaver. But if you have problem you need to copy Fractals.scr file to special directory
- for Windows2000 C:/winnt/system32
- for Windows XP and rest C:/windows/system32
If windows still doesn't see Fractals screensaver, try to find files with scr extension and move Fractals.scr file there. Select properties of you screen and make Fractals as active screensaver.
If you have problems with uninstall procedure just remove Fractals.scr file from the directory where you had unpacked the screensaver.
