Second Nature - Once Upon a Christmas

What is Second Nature - Once Upon a Christmas?

Once Upon a Christmas is a Windows screen saver and wallpaper manager distributed by Second Nature. The program installs the Second Nature Screen Saver Update which is designed to keep the software updated as well as installs additional free images, wallpapers and various additional collections. Also, the software will automatically change the user's wallpaper.


Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with.
