Not that I know off! I cannot remember any previous mention of an scr eBook format, and a quick google did not show up anything obvious.

Thanks - I've encountered it couple of times searching for books....maybe it's someone's idea of joke.

I really don't know what it is but I have a file purported to be an ebook called "Mindgames Phil Jackson's Long Strange Journey By Roland Lazenby.scr". It is 33.6mb and I have not a clue what to do with it besides deleting it.

use a HEX editor and look at the first chunk. It could be malware buried in a screensaver
