Default Screensaver wont work.......any help??

I am trying to use "my pictures slideshow" as my screensaver in Win XP SP2 and it will not run. Did a little research and found if you are using a microsoft wireless mouse (which I have) and try to run that screensaver it wont work. Am I correct with that, and if so, is there any fix to it (patch, download, update etc).

Thank You for all the help!

Well, if you flip your mouse over and leave it for a while, you nitice it just blinks to crazy hell... I don't think there's a way to get around that either...

Are you running Vista? And what is the brand of mouse?

Look at this page

or

1) Click on Start, Run, type msconfig
2) Click on the Startup tab
3) Find the programs affiliated with your Microsoft Wireless Keyboard and Mo
use (e.g. point32 & click32) and uncheck them
4) Hit apply and restart your computer
