How do we delete screen savers?? I tried deleting them in Windows system 32 but after deleting them they pop back up.:confused:

i'm not sure if you can perm delete them...they are part of the useless BS protected by the system file protection, to truly get rid of them you'd have to delete them from there and the Dllcache folder too I believe

Make sure your installation directory isn't available first off, then go to the x:\windows\system32\dllcache folder and delete it/them, then go into the x:\windows\system32 folder and delete it. XP Is going to whine about "my system file is gone so I 'might' crash on you now" message the next time you go into display properties, but it's ok, pat it on the monitor and say "these things happen, I'll make it up to you." :D

You could also start you system up in Safe Mode Dos prompt by pressing F8 at the initial boot screen and delete your *.scr files from your windows\system32 directory and restart your system.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
