Windows 7: Batch file for...

Batch file for...

Have you ever done this, where you take a print screen, set it as the wallpaper, then end explorer.exe so people think its frozen?

Does anyone know of how to write a batch file to do this automatically?

LMAO I've never heard of that before, that's so awesome. Doing that to a co-worker if they leave their PC unlocked, thanks!!

With regards to the batch file.. I have no idea, sorry, just wanted to let you know I thought it was hilarious.

Well,, This whole process could not necessarily be completely automated through batch scripting, without doing some major scripting... is this on a 7 system?

If so, Powershell would be the better solution. I might be able to work something up.

This would take some time, and someone may come up with something before me.

If you can create the screen shot yourself, then a simple regkey file would work.

This would be a harmless prank, so, I'll see what I can come up with, when I get time.
