Screen saver drag

Lately, it seems two or three of our Windows 95 machines configured 
to use "stock" screen savers have trouble restoring the desktop 
display.  When we move the mouse, the desktop appears in patches and the 
hard drive spins furiously for several seconds (four?) until the 
complete desktop is available.  The Start button, for example, 
remains a black spot for most of the time.  This is obviously not a 
critical matter, but I'm curious why it might have just begun to 
happen on more than one machine.  Using a different screen saver does 
not remedy the problem.
