    Okay, so I have been having some problems with my system lately and wanted to start over. This weekend I reinstalled the os, all apps, added .Mac and also got that Marine Aquarium screen saver.

    The problem is that now I don't have the "Computer Name" screen saver any more. I checked in with the other screen savers and it isn't there although there's a place holder for it in the screen saver tab of sys prefs (a folder icon that gives an open dialog when clicked). It's not like I use it a lot, I actually used to use "Flurry" before I got the new aquarium one, but I just want to make sure something deeper isn't messed up with my system. Has anyone heard of something like this happening (i.e., a screen saver just disappearing)? I know I didn't delete anything, I only added the aquarium screen saver to library/screen saver, I just want to make sure that this isn't indicative of anything else wrong with the reinstall or something like that.

    Thanks.

    UPDATE: Okay, so I just wanted to check things out one more time before I went to sleep and poof, the computer name screen saver was back. I didn't do anything other than leave it alone for a while, anyone have a clue of what might have happened? Thanks.

    :confused: That's really odd. I don't think it sounds like a problem with the OS reinstall. Could've just been something weird with the marine aquarium. You're system's probably ok though.

    Second Update

    Woke up this morning, and now it's gone again - the placeholder for it is there, but the computer name screen saver won't work again. Have no idea what's going on. This is getting frustrating. :mad:
