  1. Screensavers being deleted when downloaded from specific website.


    I download screensavers from newfreescreensavers.com My McAfee security says the site is safe. They will stay on my screensavers program until I got back into the program. If leave it alone it runs the downloaded screensaver. The screensavers go into my control panel, but when I try to delete them it says that they are already deleted. I let McAfee support go onto my computer remotely and they said it is not them. I am running Windows Insider Builds and I have left several feedbacks for them and gotten no response. If it is my Insider Build I am going to quit it. But I want to make sure. I ride downloading with Edge, Chrome, and Explorer and it does the same thing.

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if that helps.

    • Go to the folder C:\Windows\System32 and sort by file type.
    • Look for the screensaver file type (.scr).
    • Find the file scrnsave.scr(you can choose any of the screensavers).
    • Right click and select send to>desktop (create shortcut). The shortcut on my attachment, but when i click on it my screen goes off and on and nothing else.Screensavers being deleted when downloaded from specific website. :)

    Screensavers being deleted when downloaded from specific website.

    Unable to delete a folder - Invalid folder name


    Suggestion:
    1. Run chkdsk x: /r to make sure that there's no HD corruption.
      x: is the drive containing the folder you want to delete.
    2. Try to delete the folder again. If still does not work, go to step 3.
    3. Download: Download - Linux Mint and create a bootable USB using: Rufus - Create bootable USB
    4. Boot up with Linux Mint and try to delete the folder again.
      NOTE: Unlike WinPE. Linux does not have any Windows permission imposed to it so it is easier to delete.
