    I have been trying to uninstall a screen saver and when i run uninstall I get a message that it cannot open the install file.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi fawhite,

    Welcome at Wilders. :)

    I moved your question here, where it will get the attention it deserves.
    Is this a very special screensaver you´re having problems with or just a file that gets started when called for?
    In the latter case removing the file/folder should not leave too much rubble behind.
    Did you check if it is listed in Add/Remove Software?

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Thanks Pieter for the reply:
    This screen saver is from Freeze.com
    Yes it is in the add/remove program list.
    That is the progam that I used to try uninstall.
    Can I just delete this out manually?
    Thanks again Frank o_O

    Hi Frank,

    You can check the folder of the program if there is a uninstall.exe or similar.
    And you´ll have to remove the startup manually, but I don´t see any problems in removing the folder.
    But maybe someone who has used it himself will come along.

    Regards,

    Pieter
