Screen savers

There are many free screensavers across the internet. Like New.net, but the problem is that they're all bundled up with ads and spyware, some even with trojans and porn ad viruses. I downloaded one from new.net(I suspected that they bundled it up) and when I unzipped it, it had a installer for gain(gator), new.net spyware and over 15 ad url's, 3 of which pointed to porn sites.
The good old dotcom days are over....

This is bad(duh), but dosn't anyone know of a page where you can download free (uncrippled) screen savers that don't have ad/spyware?

Try Bugix, advertised as both spyware- and virus-free.

And I checked out that bugix thing, it turns out to be a screensaver based on a game. If you download a Lord of the Rings screensaver, it's still advertisement. I want no ads of any type. And it must be free too.

I have yet to find good free screensavers that did not have spyware or advertisments. I have searched myself spending hours looking. Your best bet will be to purchase them or create your own.
