Can't select "Bubbles" Screensave

Hi guys,
I need to reenable the "Bubbles" screensaver. I have the ability to select a screensaver (the list isn't grayed out) but I think the service is disabled and I don't know how to find it to reenable it. Can someone please help me out?

To enable a screen saver in Microsoft Windows follow the instructions below:

Open the Control Panel.
Double-click on the display icon.
Click the screen saver at the bottom right
Select the screen saver you want to enable.

There isn't one. Have I somehow disabled the ability to enable screensavers? If that makes any sense...

"Bubbles" Screensaver with other background possible?
As you know there is a screensaver "Bubbles" provided with Win7. I like it but dislike the background of it. Can I somehow change the background to another image? Or does "Bubbles" work only with this light blue Win background? Peter
