Display Pop-ups on remote screen

Hi Experts
I need to come up with a solution whereby information in the form of a graphic is displayed on remote computers. I know, as an example, that by means of a script a .jpg can be deployed via exchange to all connected computers on a domain. This popup will then occur when next the user logon. However, I would need a different of better method whereby I can automate a similar solution. I would want to develop an application using VB.NET that a specific user can add a graphic from a file and the target audience (like for example an ip range or even a specific mailing group on exchange would be targeted) would receive this graphic as a popup or maybe even overwrite the existing screen saver or some other popup method.
Any ideas would be appraciated.

You could have a specific folder created on the users machine when they install your program, which will hold all the special images.  Each time they run the program, the app will look for new images which you make available over a network, or even over the internet (through FTP) if the users are not all on a common network.  Of course if new images are available, it will download them into the folder on their local machines.  If the app is made to run each time the user logs on it can then choose the appropriate image and display it.
