Hi
looking for software or a way that change the wall paper remotely so the user in the other side won't feel or know it , i can
do it by RDP connection or other control softwares (Radmin,Vnc,LogMeIn , Etc.)
but i am looking for a way that will be "geeky & tricky" when the other side will show up his desktop he will notice that his
backGroung was changed...
p.s - in can hide the desktop tab in display properties or edit pemissions by group policy for ex. but thats not the point...
must be something tricky in registry (connect to network registry) or any other similar way ...
its Just for sports and fun....
thanks

Not the sort of thing we talk about here. However innocent you make it sound, that kind of info could easily be adapted for more nefarious reasons.
