Run Win7 theme when locked

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

If you click on an empty area of the Desktop and click Personalise then click Screensaver and set it to Pictures you could set your pics to run for as long as you want.

Make sure you tick the box to set a logon screen if anyone tries to move the mouse or stops the pics.
