UAC screensaver "station locked"

I found this along ND and decided to share it over here...

**UPDATED LINK FOR SCREENSAVERS!**

Copy the files in the RAR to the Windows/system32 directory.

Note: It seems you can't use the non-scanline and scanlined versions of 1.2 in the same dir, so it means you have to delete one to use one or the other seen. This does not apply to Dirtylarry's, only Mikey's.

It looks nice, but horribly slow and it's all separated out into a half dozen files. :(

its ok......but could be fast and very staticy (like the gui's in the game)

ooo, ooo, and maybe user-text options for your own messages
(I know the read-me on the .zip file does mention how to do that)

Being a moron is not investigating properly when some random application is opening ports to listen to internet traffic when it has no reason to be doing so.

The swf is smooth for me when I run it in IE, at like half-size, but if I run it fullscreen it's a little jerky.

Beautiful. But, my station ISN'T locked. It doesn't have the option for a password?

I remember we did that on my friends laptop,Se it to the text one and made it say enter password then passwored it,Then we set the thing to like one minute.So if he had to leave his desk at school no one would fuck with it.

Ya, I wish it had a cool little UAC interface that asked you for a password...oh well, I guess I'll just have to use the Windows version which completely ruins the whole "Super-important computer" mood. :P

It doesn't work anymore, text scrolling instead, saying something about it being a demo... :(

You can set your computer to lock with the screensaver. Or lock your comp with "Windows + L" and wait for the screensaver to kick in.
