Do you have powershell enable on all your computer in the domain?

I dont want to interrupt user activity.
There are users uploading data by data uploader.
This message should not disturb them.
That si the reason I am looking for taskbar notification. e.g. oulook new email notification

@ leakim971
We have both windows-XP and windows-7 PCs

Atleast a script which I can schedule from the local PCs on all PCs to run on every xhours will do the job. i.e. not mandatory to send through network. I will deploy the scheduled task through GP

You can use a Balloon Icon with Powershell.
The below script will do it for one PC, if you have remoting enabled and there are no firewall issues, I would suggest using "Invoke-Command" to send the command to multiple PCs at once.


[void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")

$objNotifyIcon = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.NotifyIcon 

$objNotifyIcon.Icon = "C:\IconExample.ico"
$objNotifyIcon.BalloonTipIcon = "Error" 
$objNotifyIcon.BalloonTipText = "This is your message." 
$objNotifyIcon.BalloonTipTitle = "Message Title"
 
$objNotifyIcon.Visible = $True 
$objNotifyIcon.ShowBalloonTip(10000)

Open in new window

Earlier days, means for Win XP and previous systems we could use Net Send command to send messages to all computers.. but Vista onwards Net send wont work, so we have msg.exe to send messages to computers. You can refer following article which has a sample powershell code which uses msg command to send messages to a list of computers.. Check and see if it works for you..Else you need to look for third-party tools like LanTalk LAN messenger etc. Honestly I don't see any other option for you.. Good luck.. :)
