    For some years I`ve been using Google Photos Screensaver,found under the Tools tab in Picassa,linked to a folder on my PC,which scrolls through photos when PC is idle. I use Picassa for nothing else but this.

    Now thinking I`d like a change I uninstalled Picassa followed by running C Cleaner to remove any dregs left behind,thinking screensaver would go too.Not so.Screensaver still works as always,nothing`s changed.

    I`ve searched C drive and looked at Google in Program Files but cannot find the program.Can anyone work out what may be happening here please?

    I don`t consider it vitally important by any means but would like to understand.

    Look for *.scr files in Windows\system32 One might be picassa/google related. Also check your screen saver settings in Windows to see what it's set to.

    I did find a screensaver file yesterday evening but there were no Windows or Picasa files.Now I`ve looked for it again today I cannot find it.

    I feel rather out of my comfort zone delving deep into Windows to be honest.I think I`ll just abandon the idea and let it carry on,though I`ve no means
    of linking any other folders to it.

    edit.I just opened Control Panel ansdhave found therein the means to alter settings so I think I`ll live with it for now and investigate further at a later date.
