How do I get Santa off my desktop?


When downloading a X-Mas screensaver, I somehow aquired a Santa start-up and shut-down screen. I have no idea where to even look for this, but I am sure it is in the registry. I have done a search on the hard drive looking for anything of this nature with no luck. Is there a simple way to remove these screens and get the "old microsoft clouds" back?

Hi: first, try going to the Add/Remove Programs item in control panel and try uninstalling the screensaver from there Ifit is not listed then it may be just a matter of deleting him from your desktop Try the following: Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Double click Display, Click Web tab, Click the Web site you got the screensaver from, click Delete, then yes, then OK? Hope this works!
