Delete Unwanted Screen Savers
1. First navigate to “C:\windows\system32\dllcache”. Cut and paste or type in your address bar to get there  because it is a hidden folder . Once there, delete the Screen Savers in that folder . Otherwise, you will find that they will come back no matter how many times you delete them from your system 32 folder.
2.  Then you have to go to C: \Windows\system32 and delete the Screen Savers you want to get rid of . (Answer the file protection popups with cancel and yes.)
3.  Voila---no more Screen Savers!!!!

    Thank you, it did work, but I had to go into Service Pack Files and delete the screensavers there and then your instructions worked great.

    If it is one you put on yourself and you named it in a folder/doucoments/pictures/etc. then yougo to where you named it and delete it there. Or go to recent doucoments and find what you named it as and delete it there.

    I haven't rated you yet because I haven't used it yet & I really don't know how to to use it. I don't know what it means, so I will have get a friend to help me. I'm not very good on my computer but I am learning. I downloaded a screen saver but I really don't know what that is. It has only caused me problems. Charley Harrington
