Apart from being a resource hog like most other cool screensavers, it's very nice.

But then resource hogging is no longer a problem for me. Long live ARMTech! Big grin

The Star Alliance is the best screensaver out there. Constantly updating, as soon as US Airways joined the alliance, you could see their flights on the screensaver!

Be warned. Once loaded the Star Alliance screensaver is difficult to delete from your PC. I still have not figured out how to get rid of it.

Why would you want to get rid of it?  Smile
It's no spyware or something like that...

My anti virus software keeps saying that it is a possible threat, so best deleted or quarantined.

Hm probably because it needs to access the internet for updates. I checked the Starsaver with several anti-spyware programmes and virus scanners and can only conclude it's harmless.
But ofcourse it's your own choice  Smile
