The other day I was working on my computer files when this weird thing happend. My screen flashed and my computer crashed. OF coarse i lost all of my files. But then when I logged back on, I had this picture as my background.Either my computer is haunted, or someone hacked it. But either way...how would you take almost like a screenshot while you are working on the computer?And what does this picture mean?

not as funny as what i did to my sister, she was out of the room still logged on to her account, so i took a screenshot of her desktop, put in paint, saved it in the WINDOWS folder, set it as my sisters BG, hide the task bar and moved it to the side (literally), hide the icons, and you should have sen her face, she kept on clicking, with nothing happening, called me, i said that there was something wrong her desktop, she gave me the pc, i logged on to see if mine was working (to her), went back to hers, and god was she pissed, she saved her GCSE to the desktop, and when she wasnt looking, i unhid the icons, and showed her it worked, she looked away again (at the tv i think) i hid the icons, and kept doing that until she thought that it didnt like her, next day i said how i did it, worst thing i did that day.......

Do you have an active Firewall running ? I don't see the icon in the tray, and if you have the default firewall, that is hardly a firewall. Sounds like you have been "invaded"

He totally did this in paint. Look at the Save Icons and the Printer Icons above where it says "doomed". They still have the gray around them from when he copied and pasted them from the Save and Printer icons in the Word GUI.

nevertheless, I have seen the: edit edit edit repeated button problem on my own machine once. It was quite weird ( MSIE ? )

My monitor is a laptop monitor. I copied the picture, pasted it into paint and then zoomed in =)

You would make out the little grey better on bad resolution monitors. And that it is possible that a glitch might still have the buttons in there.

Also, if you lost all of your files, why would you have a Grade 7 folder with Power Point Presentations in it, 4 Microsoft word documents open, GradeQuick, and Excel. Sounds to me like you're trying to fool us.

And look at the times. Screenie took at 11:52, forum topic posted 12:03. That's enough time to do a Paint touchup and post a new forum topic. It obviously wasn't posted as his desktop background as he said because there are absolutely no icons in front of the word document; not even a recycle bin, which would be there even if he lost all of his icons. Where it says 'ILL", there are way too many spaces before it. Also, the picture isn't the size that a real screenshot is, so it must have been shrunken.

If your refering to me as "Him" And "He"... Congradulations! You've just passed the IQ Test I designed. People always try to believe what they see... withput even trying to back it up. You were smart enough to figure me out. I pretty much did all of the above and you figured me out! I'm impressed! Do you have an email I could get to you at?

That's quite a prank! IMO, you photoshopped this. Really, I think you did. Multiple edit thingys and pictures in the Save As screen? ... Good one.
