Well I'm not at a computer with autoit, but I would guess

ShellExecute("http://google.com") or Run("http://google.com")

For the screensaver I have no idea.. You should be able to run a screensaver, but to run the screensaver selected in windows settings i got no clue.. (Most screensavers have a .scr if i remember right)
