Scatter is a 32-bit screen saver for Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP.
When the screen saver is started it takes the screen, breaks it into blocks and bounces them around the screen. When the blocks
hit the edge of the screen, they bounce back in the opposite direction. Because the direction and speed of each block is generated
randomly each time Scatter is started, the effect is not always the same; there are a huge number of variations to see.
If you're running the latest revision of Windows and Internet Explorer, no other files
are required. However, if some system components are older versions or you don't run IE, you
may need to download some of the following files. Unless specified, the files should be installed in

Unzip the file Scatter.scr

Load the Display Properties by either right-clicking the desktop and choosing Properties or via the Control Panel.
Scatter should be listed in the available choices in the Screen Saver tab.

bit of code ever. If the display is too slow, try dropping down the number of blocks
in the Screen Saver properties -> Settings. Failing that, buy a new machine and/or video
