Ok Ive been doing the seti search for years now. This past week I noticed that I still have the Boinc and its still running seti but I dont have the screen saver nor is it listed when I go looking under windows screen savers. How Do I get it back?

When was the last time you downloaded any work?

According to your task list you have no work in cache. No work means that your computer is sitting idle, mostly. No work also means no screen saver.

You probably missed out on the new application switch.
In http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/prefs.php?subset=project make sure that SETI@home v7 is checked, so your computer can accept work from that. It's the new work application, the older Seti Enhanced v6 is no more.

If you used a third party optimized application, you'll have to update that one manually.
