    Introduction

    One of the most feared colors in the NT world is blue. The infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) will pop up on an NT system whenever something has gone terribly wrong. Bluescreen is a screen saver that not only authentically mimics a BSOD, but will simulate startup screens seen during a system boot.
    •

    On NT 4.0 installations it simulates chkdsk of disk drives with errors!
    •

    On Win2K and Windows 9x it presents the Win2K startup splash screen, complete with rotating progress band and progress control updates!
    •

    On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 it present the XP/Server 2003 startup splash screen with progress bar!

    I'd like to see it but our asinine av product classifies it as a 'joke' and quarantines it.

    I was about to post that I saw this on the Sysinternals site a very long time ago, but then I took another look at the link path (on the page) and saw that it is now part of the spoils of the Sysinternals takeover.

    Got to love playing jokes on people and watch them panic! :D

    Now, anyway to set this screensaver as a group policy? could be interesting on some customer sites. :D
