How can I create a screen saver for Windows?

I want to know how I can create my own screen saver for Win32 or Win64 platforms. Is there a shareware that lets you do that? Is there a book that can tell me how to do this in detail? Thanks in advance, John.
Actually, creating screen savers is relatively simple for Windows. For C++ development, you can get an idea where to start by looking at a sample screen saver supplied with the Platform SDK. An easier approach might be to just use .NET, since .NET handles much of the heavy lifting of memory management and other hassles for you. Microsoft has a sample you can learn from.
