Does anyone here use WEBSHOTS ?


In summary, its a website/service that downloads pictures regularly & updates your PC background / screen saver with new pictures.


Summary: i used to have this a few years ago & it was great, I could get 1-2 new pictures a day.


Ive had a few PC's since then & Ive recently re-joined it again. However they've changed their processes now.


Now, you've got to install their software (you did this in the old version i remember - anyway). & apparently it processes lots of data & "charges" your account. When you get a full charge, you can download a picture.


PROBLEM: Ive installed this a few days ago, & its charging. However its VERY slow.. i never get to a full charge when i turn off my PC for the night. The next day, i re-start from the beginning.


Does anyone use this, and how fast does your PC need to go ? (the webshots programme doesn't give me many stats (or any) to tell how fast i'm processing.


The above FAQ / website does not advise us what exactly the webshots system is processing, or a percentage / countdown-timer to tell us when its finished processing "1 unit" of whatever its processing.


Does anyone use this & how fast of a PC do you need to use webshots ?


Also - any recommended tools that i can download to get basic stats on my PC - eg processors / speed / RAM etc
