    I'm trying to find a screensaver which can take the contents of a file and display it as the screensaver text - scrolling I presume. I also need the screensaver to re-read the text file on a regular basis and change the screensaver text to show the new data.

    Preferably free!!

    Any ideas from anyone?

    Sounds like you want a 'marquee' screen-saver. Google brings up several thousand possibilities, including this and this.

    In addition to the two from Leif, I found this one but have no experience with the site or the vendor. Be wary of internet screensavers!

    Download Fading Text Screen Saver 1.0 - A text screensaver that will show the text lines from a text file. - Softpedia

    It doesn't say anything about changing or updating the text file, so I suppose you would have to do that manually.

    Added Later: Just for the safety of it, I downloaded the file and scanned it with both Avast and Malwarebytes. It shows up clean.
