I use to be able to go into System 32 and delete all the screensavers that I no longer used or wanted. I just went there and tried to delete some and they delete for about a second then when I go to delete another the one I just deleted prior reappears???? What the heck is up with that??? :thumbsup: In fact some that I had thought I got rid of/deleted have reappeared???? I am starting to think I'm losing my mind :flowers:

Any help would be appreciated,

La Princess

You used to do this with windows xp or earlier versions of windows? It may be windows file protection replacing the file after you delete it

Yes Grinler I have done it with Windows XP I had upgraded to the SP2 but then went back to SP1 because some of my programs would not yet run with the SP2. But, I think that I had done this before with both??? I really don't remember :thumbsup:

Is there a work around to delete them?

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back...

Thank you so much for all of your help, I really appreciate it :flowers:

I too would like more details on the WIN XP file protect system--Recently while replacing vulnarable GDI files--the old one kept popping back into the folder. So the vulnerable one still sits there in "sxs" folder!--- :thumbsup:
