How can I create a custom SCR screen saver with my company's logo reliably and for free?

Is anyone aware of a utility that is reliable, free of malware, and free cost that will allow me to create an extremely simple .SCR screen saver file that has my company's logo in it?

Essentially, I want exactly what the Windows XP screen saver does but with my logo rather than Microsoft's.

I'm not looking to buy any tools and I want simple and low-weight.  No bells, whistles, animation, 3D, etc.  I'm hesitant to go downloading any free tools without prior recommendation as most are littered with malware.

Thanks.

Why don't you use "My pictures Slide show" ?
Put your Logo in different forms inside my pictures folder and your done !

I should've been clearer with my original request, for that I apologize.

I'm looking for a self-contained .SCR file so that it facilitates easy deployment and management for an entire enterprise.  This is not for one specific machine or even a few workstations.  It's for servers, workstations, etc.

The use of the My Pictures Slide Show has a ton of drawbacks from an enterprise management perspective.  Most specifically the ability to easily swap out an image with another image of the same name that may or may not be professionally appropriate.  Therefore, a self-created, self-contained .SCR file is required.

Thank you for your input however.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I remember from a long time ago that I used ACDsee in my computer.
It had a part called "Fotoangelo"
It can make a custom SCR for you with a lot of effects.
You can download the latest version from here :

Unfortunately most of these don't do what I need.  The best candidate was the one found at this link:

http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Screen-Savers-To-Go-Download-96823.html

as posted above.  However, it is riddled with Unhandled Exception issues that crop up and doesn't seem to animate the image around the screen, it just leaves it in the middle like a slideshow.  Not exactly a screen saver as much as a static background.  :)

All the suggestions were good but none really suit my fancy.  Thanks for the help.
