    If it's one you've installed, you may find it in 'add/remove progs', otherwise I think screensavers are in System32 as .scr files....

    If u can't find it in "Add and Remove Programs" just do a search with ".scr" and you'll see a whole bunch of entries with screensavers. Just delete the one(s) u don't want.

    Whoa! Hold the phone a minute!
    Why do you want to 'delete' a screensaver anyway?
    Do you possibly mean you want to 'change' the screensaver? or use no screensaver?
    I use a black screen (none). It can be changed in the control panel, appearance and themes, choose a screensaver ....
