How do you display what's on the desktop while the computer is locked?

We have a program that we would like to display on a projector. We would also like to lock the computer so someone can't wander up and change what is displayed. The problem of course is that when we lock the computer it just displays the wall paper and the "computer is locked" window.
Does anyone know how you can display what is on the desktop while the computer is locked?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

'real-time'?
I don't think so...
You could maybe work something somehow using a still image, but that probably isn't going to serve your purpose.
The only other thing I can think of is to make your image(s) into a screen saver and use that for the display on the projector...

Yes, it is "real-time" program that other folks are logged into and using that we want to demonstrate; sorry I should have specified that. Therefore the screen saver idea won't work.

Possible just to remove the keyboard and mouse and leave the screensaver off?

It's possible, but they don't want to do that if it can be avoided.
