I had the exact problem and installing this optional update fixed it.
Too bad that microsoft didn't include it by default.

Installation date: ‎5/‎9/‎2009 10:52 PM

You looked in the correct place.
The screen saver does not work when you use a Microsoft wireless pointing device on a Windows Vista-based computer is the article that will tell you exactly the same thing you've done. Plug in your keyboard/mouse and then run windows updates. Make sure you check the optional updates also! As Marko from Tropoja said... Good Luck... (as a side note, you can always go into the device manager and right click on a specific device and tell it to update the device driver)

When I go into Windows Update, it says that there are no new updates. There is no option showing to get optional updates either!

Select the optional update.
