Trick Friends With Bluescreen Screensaver~

The screen that everyone scared to have on their monitor, is the famous Bluescreen. Whenever you get that screen, it means that your computer is in BIG trouble. Now there’s a way to trick your friends! There is a Bluescreen screensaver that is released by Microsoft (actually is released by SysInternal which is now under Microsoft).

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.

Feeling excited? hahaha.. This is what you need to do in order to fool your friends.

1. Download the screensaver here.

2. Extract “SysInternals Bluescreen.scr” in the zip file into your friend’s computer’s \windows\system32 directory.

3. Right click on desktop and click properties and click the screen saver tab. Follow the screen shot as below.

4. Select the screen saver and click on settings. Tick the fake disk activity like the screenshot below.

If you do not click this, the screensaver is just a blue screen. But after you click the fake disk activity, it will show the blue screen, and then stated “Restarting” and then startup splash screen with progress bar! Not only that, the screen saver will only be closed after hitting the Esc button for at least 3 times.. 😛 😛

5. Select wait for 1 minute and click Apply.

6. Laugh out loud when you heard your friend crying for help!~ Have fun!

I managed to trick a friend by just asking him to click the preview button on the desktop properties screen. He saw the bluescreen and restart his laptop immediately. He told me that his laptop got some problem that he cannot open the preview the screensaver… LOL!!!

P.S: I hold no responsibility of what will happen after your friend found out about what you did to his/her computer. Whether you get any bruises or anything… don’t find me.. huhu~!
