This screen saver has no options that you can set.
The Desktop Window's Screen Save option usually allows you to set a number
of options, including such things as the length and width of the Screen
Saver. These options differ, depending upon the type of Screen Saver that
you select, and the one that you have currently selected has no options that
you can set.

I have faced the same problem at work and have solved it this way:
1) Open the Registration Editor by Start menu > Run > enter "regedit"
2) Go here: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\POLICIES\WINDOWS\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP" (or use Ctrl + F)
3) Double click the binary data files and change their "value data"
ScreenSaveActive --> whether you're applying a screensaver
ScreenSaveTimeOut --> seconds after screensaver is activated
I am using Windows XP. Hope this method for you too!
