     Do you remember Hot Corners that came with Plus for Windows 95. Simply point your mouse to one corner or another and you could start your screen saver or prevent it from starting at all. That functionality was lost in Windows 98 when the System Agent was replaced with the Task Scheduler. The sage.dll file still exists but it needs the System Agent to run correctly. Here is a custom Hot Corners application and a Screen Saver Template that implements it. The Hot Corners App includes a Settings Dialog that can be called up from the Display Properties window by clicking on the Hot Corner Squares allowing you to change each corners function. The Screen Saver Template shows you how to implement Hot Corners into your custom screen saver and includes support for Preview Mode on the Display Properties window, Changing the Password, and a Settings Dialog.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
