If the screensaver is not in the Add/Remove, go to Windows Start then click All Programs. Look for the name of the screensaver or the name of the developer. Move your mouse cursor over it and a drop down menu should appear with an Uninstall option, click it.

Not in Add/Remove or All Programs

Go to Windows Start and click Search > All files and folders. Type in the name of the screensaver and click the Search button. All files and sometimes a folder associated with the screensaver will show up. The one with the ‘.scr’ file name is the actual screensaver. Right click on the file name and delete. You may want to delete all the files that come up since they will be useless. Do a search for the name of the developer; sometimes they will create a folder without asking.

If nothing shows up in the search

Go back to Search > All files and folders > click More advanced options. Check (activate) Search system folders, Search hidden files and folders and Search subfolders. Run the Search again.
