XP Screensaver misbehaving

I have my Windows XP Pro Screen Saver set to scroll through ‘my pictures’ as a slideshow. That’s fine until it has run for perhaps 3 or 4 minutes – then it begins a slideshow of its own – simply a full screen of red, blue, green, white, etc, etc.
The screensaver also used to close down (hibernate?) after a while but now it just continues with the colour display until I move the mouse (for example) and reactivate my computer.
I haven't tried fixing it with System Restore yet.........
What’s the problem and how can I return it to the original settings?

"I haven't tried fixing it with System Restore yet"

I think that should be the first thing you try.

If it doesn't work, post back.

Hi Jackcoms
No - no go. Did System Restore and took it back two weeks (at least a week before the problem started) but it's still the same.
Next suggestion please.
Cheers
