I'm confused. I picked an image, hit start, and nothing happened. Also a small bug. Mouse over the Launch on Windows Startup button and it slightly covers the edge of the input box (just a little of the blue border).

Same thing for me, I think its your GUI wich isnt visible in Windows XP; perhaps you wanted to make child on a window wich doesnt exists on XP ?

Note : Ive added you on msn, see you soon :)

Cheers, FireFox.

might i ask what exactly is the point of this tool?

what would a "screen cover" be used for?

Keeping the parents from seeing the porn? lmao

If you're looking to switch to another screen why not take up a Virtual Machine..Much more handy eh.

Besides keeping a desktop private is as easy as logging out of the user account lol

Ps. "Any terms in this agreement related to Hikaku product ownership, distribution, or modification will be handled in accordance with the laws of United States of America." i found this to be rather funny.

It's autoit -.- so don't be lame. besides like the exe cannot be cracked back to original sources?

Basically yes it's useful for keeping parents from seeing your porn or your boss from seeing you browsing the net, but this project is still in its early stages and has yet to have it's major features added to it.

The the EULA was written to inform anybody that I do own Hikaku the name and the exe and anybody who thinks otherwise or wants to mess with it will be prosicuted. As per the cracking of the exe file I can refer you here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=629747

@youknowwho4eva: I will be fixing that in an update I plan to release later today.

Peace,

So what..it makes a copy of the desktop and masks its image over the real thing? else it'd be pointless to have it "hide" the desktop

McAfee killed it. Any reason why?

McAfee found it as W32/Autorun.worm.zf.gen

@firestorm im not quite sure why McAfee killed it my avast was perfectly fine with it. there is a registry write for the launch on windows feature but I dont see why that would trigger McAfee
