N~ 1.SCR looks like a truncaked screen saver name (when a name is longer then 8 characters, it comes up with the ~) the .scr is a screen saver extension.

Just as something to try, disable any and all screen savers you have running and see it the error stops.

Please inform after trying this.

Your C drive has become cluttered. Try Check Disk from ACCESSORIES-SYSTEM TOOLS and the chose de-fragment from the same(system tools0. If this does not help, go to start menu and remove all non-essential programs which are not needed all the time, like,Acrobat, MS Office, Any other media player except Windows Media Player and your Anti-Virus software. The rest of the programs will only start when you uchoose to use that particular software. For hint Open Task Manager and under PROCESS tab check how many applications are on . The ones which says----SYSTEM, ignore, but all *.exe which has your user name on the next column are installed by you but not all of them need to be open all the time. select and click end process. If warning comes that this is a windows sytem application and even on clicking ok it refuses to terminate or indactes a lomg list of programs will not work properly, avoid, but the rest u can safely delete from the Start-up menu. All the best & if u stil have any probs, please clarify your Operating System including version and I'll send u links for some useful windows tweak Softwares and theur corresponding download links....sodeep
PS If u are a bit savy & have been using PC's for long, try a good registry editer plus cleaber Like ADVANCED SYSTEM OPTIMIZER ver 2.1(only if u are not using VISTA)

Turn off the, or better yet uninstall, the Acer Screensaver. Something you installed, possibly a screensaver program? has corrupted the Acer screensaver causing that error message. That add-on screensaver is notoriously buggy anyway.

It sounds as if your hard drive is cluttered. Defrag it and then get a free program called CCleaner. Run that to clean your registry. That should solve your problem.
