     This app will collect your system information, save it to a bitmap and then set your desktop wallpaper to the system info bitmap. This is an excellent tool for support centres to aid with information gathering when a client PC and/or application is not behaving. There's a lot of code here: Collect CPU info Get IP Address (no winsock) Capture the screen Save a bitmap Set the desktop wallpaper bitmap Set the desktop wallpaper tiling off Refresh the desktop All this code is extractable for your own uses. This app requires GetCPU.dll. I have included it in the zip (renamed to GetCPU.txt - I wonder if PSC will allow it - simply rename it from txt to dll and place it in c:\windows or winnt\system32\). Please vote and comment.

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
