Goto the control panel, click on Add/Remove programs, find the one you want to remove, and click on remove.

You can also choose a different screen saver by going to Control Panel, Display, and the click the Screen Savers tab at the top, scroll down the list and Apply the one you want.

do a search for the name of the screen saver, right click and delete.

Screensavers usually live in the C:\Windows\System\ directory (or whatever drive you got Windows on, of course) you just need to find the onen you want and delete it.
