A screen-dimming program that would be great for use at work, to keep snoopers away.

For various reasons, an EXE is needed; a SCR won't work. Thanks!

You mean something like skrommel's dimsaver, but not an scr?
Actually, .scr is a .exe, all you have to do is change it's extension and it'll still work.
So, just download the mentioned app,change its name to dimsaver.exe and "create a shortcut to it with a /C parameter to configure, or /S to run.". Wink

Hmm... AVG tells me that DimSaver.scr contains Trojan Horse PSW.Agent.CRB.

Any ideas?

AVG isn't very smart tongue

If you still aren't sure, download the source code (which is in the green icon with an "H") and compile it using autohotkey.

Anyways, i've seen it's code already, there's no trojan there. possibly it's marked as trojan because it monitors the keeyboard and mouse when the screensaver is up, to know when to quit.

I'm sure it's fine, but AVG won't give up.

Well, I recompiled it with AHK (deleted a couple line breaks - I don't know if that caused the problem), and it's working fine now.

this is common with AVG. in fact, Skrommel's MultiMonMan is also flagged down as having Trojan horses. but as jgpaiva stated, rest assured that this is a false  alarm, probably due to AHK's internal structure..
