How do you install an animated screensaver?

I found a cool Minecraft animated screensaver and downloaded it but I don't know how to turn it into my screensaver. It's a .scr file, but I don't know where to put it so I can use it.

    STOP! DO NOT INSTALL OR ATTEMPT. It is a Trojan. The Screen Saver is Booby Trapped.

    "SCR file extension started to be used to transmit a Trojan. As a script or a screen saver this file can execute other files which carry the Trojan. The SCR file may be embedded within a ZIP file which could also contain a file with a double extension....

    Windows (Screen Saver)Many Windows screen savers come with a .SCR extension by default. Usually these will be found in the Windows main directory. Use caution if you receive a screen saver file via E-mail. These files can contain executable code and can be worms or viruses. Note: This file type can become infected and should be carefully scanned if someone sends you a file with this extension"

    Delete the file immediately.
