I have had a lot of success spraying a small amount of wd40 around the edge of the screw head and letting it sit for +/- an hour then spray again and wait again.

Definitely hit it with some wd40 a few times and let it sit . Make sure you're using the correct size screw driver so that you don't end up destroying the head of the screw. These require a thicker tip then you're average screwdriver.

I've had to drill one out due to the previous owner damaging the screw but that should definitely be your last resort.

Very true - screw driver size is the key

I have a small cordless impact driver that I use on stuck screws and bolts. The impact action has loosened lots of screws that I was ready to give up on.

I would try aerokroil or other penetrating type spray first over a couple days. then using the right size screwdriver In the slot, give it a tap or two on the screwdriver handle top with a hammer and then try turning it. This usual works for me.

Use a correct size screwdriver with a wrench bung by the handle...then try tightening the screw a little first to break the corrosion.Use a wrench on the bung will give you better leverage & more control. You can twist til the heads bust off then deal with the studs left...
