How can I install the background program thing - the one that automatically downloads the astronomy picture of the day every day on the computer's background?

The APOD Wallpaper software automatically updates your Windows desktop wallpaper from the Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD) web site. The APOD site has cool pictures of stars, nebula, galaxies, space missions, the earth, and planets along with descriptions like those below. Use the APOD WallPaper software to ensure that you don't miss any of the APOD images.
The software is free and works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 with Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or later. Download it now.
Aliens will find Earth absolutely amazingly beautiful and fragile to behold. But if they get close enough, they'll see 7,000,000,000 of us and think "Uh oh, that's a lot for such a small planet. Wonder if we should help?"
