The Alivio component group is not made from the strongest steel. It can strip out easily. If you can get the screws to back out you can try a couple of options. Get some Locktite Threadlocker. An auto parts store should have a variety. It comes in a variety of strengths. Snug the screw up as tight as possible and leave alone until the locktite does its work.
A second option is to tap out the whole with a tap and dye kit and just go up a size of screw.
Of course you can always just remove the chain guard. I haven't had one for years. If I have to right with pants on I just use a velcro strap to keep the pant leg out of the chain.
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
