    Default unwanted screensavers

    I have a number screensavers listed in my screensaver box which I would like to delete, but cannot find out how to get rid of them. Can you help with instructions on how to do it.

    Hi Walleroo2

    Screensavers have the extension .scr. The files can be found in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM. There are a lot of important files in the SYSTEM folder you don't want to accidently delete, so the best way of removing them is by doing a search for all files using *.scr in the search field. Then delete the unwanted files from this list.

    If you have installed a screensaver program, you should be able to uninstall it through add/remove.

    This comes into the 'cloudy crystal ball' category of post.
    I mean what OS are you using for starters?

    If you are running windows and are trying to delete the 'packaged' screensavers that came with your OS I doubt you can.

    And why would you want to delete them anyway? Just don't use them, use power management instead.

    Search the c:\ drive for *.scr files (screensavers have the extension .scr) and delete the unwanted files.
