Would anyone like to have a free 300 points?

I need some help on a simple April Fool's joke.

My friend had a virus on his machine that displayed a huge black circle that you couldn't minimize.  I'd like to create a "program" that has this feature, which stays on a user's screen for 2 seconds, and goes away.  This can be randomly shown from 1 minute to 5 minutes.  I don't have a problem making this timer stuff, my question is how do I draw the circle, so it stays large on everyone screen?

How do I do it so if you're working in a window that has focus, this circle is shown on the top?

Is there any way I could embed this within a word document?  If i send it out via email it would launch if they clicked on the word document?  (You don't have to answer this one if it goes against your beliefs)

Last time I went to their machine and planted the .exe myself.  That was fun.

I'll split up points for the help.

ho ho, sounds like an infingement of the computer misuse act

I wouldn't want to be part of this outrage.

Seriously though, have you ever considered that hospitals and charities have to spend money on anti-virus software, which could otherwise be used to help people.

I work at a hospital...

My co-workers are pranksters.  This would be fun for the whole family.

I already got something from here which opened their CD drawer every 3 minutes.  That was fun.

OK the always on top is in it.  I am having it disappear/reappear every 5 or so seconds.

That's a good start...

I wouldn't mind modifying it, not a big VB'er, can you tell me where you set the every 5 seconds thing at?

This will work, just needs some tweaking  :-)
