ritchie58 Posted September 12, 2010 Report Share Posted September 12, 2010 Here is an idea I've never seen any security vendor offer. A screen-saver application that is also an antivirus scanner. A screen-saver doesn't activate, usually, unless your system is idle, so instead of having a water fall, twinkling lights, dancing elves or whatever, why not have an app that would do your system some good instead of eye candy that just uses up system resources. It wouldn't need to have a lot of gee whiz special effects. Just keep it simple and functional. You could make it a stand alone application or incorporate an option in the GUI itself. If having that much extra code written in the software is unfeasible then go with the stand alone approach and make it a separate download. Seems like a good idea to me and I bet users would appreciate and use the application. I use Auslogics Disk Defrag (instead of the much slower Windows defrag tool) and they recently came out with a screen-saver that is also a defrag tool (a stand alone application) which I am using and thought was very innovative. That's where I got the idea. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
