i found this interesting screen saver when stumbling and just had to share it here. what this is is an exact replica of the BSOD (blue screen of death) . fully complete with fake reboot, note that moving the mouse will not work you must actually click a key. This is distributed for free by ....... oh the irony..... Microsoft. Try it out (makes a great prank on friends :P)

Post the source instead. BlueScreen (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897558.aspx)
And when you do post the source, post it in the right section.

The source of the file, not the source to the screensaver, or at least that's what I thought he was talking about when he linked to microsoft

edit: I just downloaded it. This should make a fine tool to prank someone given the right conditions.

Has anyone gotten it to work with vista? Better yet - 64bit Vista?
I get the error "DirectDrawCreate FAILED"

She kept freaking out thinking she had a virus, eventually I showed her. She got mad saying how I kept laughing at her instead of telling her, and I said its not just me laughing, theres a whole message board worth of people laughing at you. She didn't like that very much, lol. Oh well, gave me a good laugh.

This screen saver comes packaged with several different viruses as well.

Note: Some virus scanners flag the Bluescreen screen saver as a virus. If this is the case with your virus scanner, you may not be able to use this screen saver.

You're the poster-boy for the argument of taking warning labels off poisons.

lol this thread is still alive? Also with the viruses, are you saying microsoft intentionally put viruses in this (then again i wouldn't put it past them :P )
