Check to see if the screensaver is on your system
C:\Windows\System32\Mystify.scr If you find it then double click the file and that should open the screensaver. Click once to close it!
When you say they aren't previewing, what happens if you set the time open the screensaver to 1 minute then see if it works!

Apparantly when i tried to preview, it says the screensaver stopped working.. Other screensavers like pictures work though.
