Can't uninstall val_day 3 screensaver

I don't care for the screensaver so decided to uninstall. The problem is, it doesn't show up in my programs and not even in the folder for SaversPlanet. It makes me very nervous because this is how viruses attack. I even tried a force uninstall, and it wasn't listed there, either.

  • Hello Margaret, thank you for posting.

    I understand your concern, but you do not need to worry about this screensaver being malware. While most screensavers in our archive were not created by us, all have been checked for safety. However, some screensavers will be easier to install and uninstall than others, a fact that depends largely on how they are distributed by their authors. As a result, it can happen, especially with older screensavers, that removal is difficult, but that does not mean they are harmful to your computer.

    You say the screensaver is not listed under "My Programs". Do you mean in the Start menu? Have you checked the "Programs and Features" panel? I see you are on Windows 7, so you can find removal instructions on this help page:
    How to remove a screensaver on Windows 7

    I hope that works! If you need any further assistance, please let me know.

  • I have just installed the screensaver and found that it is, indeed, not listed in the Start menu, and not in the "Programs and Features" panel either. As such, the only way to remove it is by deleting the screensaver file from your Windows folder.

    The instructions for manual screensaver removal can be found on the help page I linked to above. Basically, you can use the File Explorer to browse to the "Windows" folder on your local hard drive (usually C:), then locate the "val_day3" screensaver file, right-click it and select "Delete". The next time you open the Screen Saver Settings panel, it should no longer appear in the list of screensavers.
