Help removing stubborn torx screws !

Hey all, i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to remove stubborn(torx) screws . The screws in question are the ones that are at the bottom of the front windshield on both sides of the windshield . I need to remove them to put these brackets up to install some off road lights. Funny how you can come up with so many curse words when your trying to remove stuck screws !!!! Thanks in advance everyone !

Try an impact screwdriver...Those screw come factory with blue locktite I think. Mine were ridiculous to get off, broke 2 bits.

Heat will help loosen up the Loctite. PBblaster works well and the impact mentioned above.
