Anti-Screensaver prevent the system from starting the screensaver

Anti screensaver is a freeware tool that prevents the system from starting the screensaver or disables other power saving options like shutting down the monitor and going to standby mode for the title of the running application.

This is useful, if for example, if you watch a YouTube video and don't want to be interrupted by the screensaver, just run the program and add the word YouTube. Any window containing the text YouTube will trigger the application and prevent the screensaver or other power saving options.

It does this simply by simulating a key press every minute (shift key). Using this program is quite simple. Download and install the program. Run it (it will sits on the system tray) and add a text (or texts) (e.g. YouTube) and click OK to save.

You can disable the program (also from the auto startup lists of Windows) by removing the check marks next to ‘Enable Anti screensaver’.


  1. Why not to edit power saving options???

  2. maybe you don't have permission to edit the power saving options? thanks to the author, I can now day dream at work and not have to worry about my PC going to screensaver every 15 min.

  3. Must be logged in as administrator to install. Won't work for me since not having administrator rights is the reason trying this program in the first place.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required.

Another interesting feature of PaperBus is that you can create a list of websites you don't want to surf through PaperBus. PaperBus is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux systems. Download appropriate version from here. ( via )
