Where to extract new .scr screen savers to?

I've got a bunch of new screensavers with an .scr extension that I want to install.

I tried in windows>system32, but it would not give me access.

Is that where they go? If not then where.

If they do go there then how do I get access to extract them to that folder?

I believe that is where they go.

Make sure you unblock the files first, and also make sure you are using an Administrator account.

I assume you have admin rights! Do you get this message when you try to drag and drop to the system32 folder? If so just click continue.
