Deleting Screen saver entry

Posted: 01-20-2009, 01:41 AM
I had a screen saver christmasdecorating. I used add and remove in windows
xp pro to delete it. I then opened the windows folder, and went to system 32
where I deleted the folder christmasdecorating. However the entry still
appears in the list of screensavers for selection. I had this problem a long
time ago with another screen saver, and was able to delete it from the
screen saver list. I have forgotten how to delete it . What do I do to get
rid of the list entry.

Delete the .scr file that came with it.
Most likely in the System32 folder.
