Screen Saver is showing on my secondary monitor not my Primary monitor.

I have two monitors, my primary is 1920X1080 and the secondary is 1280X720.  When the photo slide show, or other screen savers that only run on a single monitor are running, they appear on the secondary monitor and not the primary monitor (part of the photo in the photo slide show will over lap onto the primary monitor).  I would like to have the screen saver be shown on the primary monitor which is what I though that windows did by default, but I cannot find any settings to change this.  I am running Windows 7 Home Premium X64, and it did this with both my ATI Radeon 3870 and 5870.  Here are some screen shots so that you can see what I mean.

Thanks for the help!

Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee the functionality of a 3rd party screen saver.  If you would please test with one of the native screen saver included within Windows, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,
