I have a screensaver but I can't find which file it is located in. I'd like to change it but scared if I take it off then I can't get it back on again as I don't know where it is located on my pc.

If you have XP, is most likely in C:\windows\system32
Same in Vista
Look for files with the suffix xxx.scr (x=name of screensaver)

If you are asking how to change the screensaver itself, no need to go to all that trouble, just right-click your mouse pointer anywhere on a empty space on the screen (not on an icon), then left-click Properties in the menu that displays, a window will open, left-click the screensaver tab and change it to whatever you like (click the blue down-arrow in the box) , click Apply then OK (this does not delete the old one ;)).

Similar process in Vista (left-click Personalise in the menu that displays).
