    How do you delete a screensaver from you list of screensavers in your desktop area? If you open up screensavers and pull down the list, sometimes these screensavers you get for free have crap attached to them, I would like to get rid of it all. Also, is there a good site out there that gives you good spam and commercial free screensavers for free?

    You either try and unstall them through the Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs icon or they are typically placed in the \windows\system32 directory with a .scr file extension.

    Hover the mouse over an entry, and it will tell you if that is a screensaver file. If it is, double click on it, and that file's screensaver will come up on your screen. Then you can see what screensaver it is, and if you want to keep it or not.
