    Works perfectly for me. Did you install the screen saver properly?


    Then again, I'm not a Lost fan--so maybe that's the trick ;).

    Of course that won't work. It's a zip archive. Open it with Stuffit or BOMArchiveManager.

    It's the app used by the OS to zip and unzip data. I suspect that your Mac did just fine unzipping the archive, as mine did, but the screensaver #1 simply doesn't work.

    seems funny that a big network like ABC would make a screensaver that doesnt work! Surely someone has told them about it!

    Thanks for your help though!
