After Dark's MS-DOS-based screen saver, AD_DOS.COM, can corrupt the screen
during MS-DOS Setup if it is allowed to clear the image on the screen and
replace it with a screen saver image.
Once the screen saver activates, you can return to a normal screen by
pressing any key. However, if this occurs during Setup, the restored screen
is filled with random characters. Setup continues to function correctly,
but you may have difficulty understanding the prompts.
