Forum rules

Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

I ran across this file once-upon-a-few-months-ago and am in desperate need for it again.
EDIT: I found it in the bowels of my webserver =D *evil laugh*
The following should be considered null and void:

This isn't a normal MS application, it is a "Prank-rus" that is extremely painful to remove.
The application does the following:
1: Overlays the whole screen with a static image
2: blocks user from doing anything with their PC (Blocks visual output, doesn't block CTRL+ALT+Delete on a Vista\7 system though, does keep you from accessing anything important though)
3: plays annoying disco song clip in the background
4: upon restart, appears before the user can do anything
5: only way to remove is to delete the executeable file.

Now the only reason I ask this is because I find it quite funny, and have a few uses for it. I have already googled it, and I can't remember what person on my MSN list gave me it. (i'm still looking though)
I found it on someone's Skydrive, and curiosity got the better of me... resulting in me spending the next hour and a half trying to remove it. The humor was quite funny, seeing as I then sent it to someone else, who had the same thing happen. the possiblities are endless =P
I was also hoping to reverse engineer it and rewrite it to change the image, and sound, along with add a few other features (random ejecting of the drive tray, contsant flashing of the Keyboard status lights... fun things like that)
Anyone know where to find such a gem?
