     This demonstration program shows you a simple, but effective method to prevent users from capturing your picture box. When a user captures the screen, an entirely different image appears in your picture box. I am working on an ActiveX component version of this application. It will retreive the picture from a secret internet location, and display it to the user in Internet Explorer. This way, websites can protect their images from copying and capturing. (Just like TerraServer.com had in the beginning.) Please vote for this submission to support the development of this open-source tool.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
