Microsoft offers prank Blue Screen Of Death

A prank application that mimics the notorious Blue Screen Of Death is now available from Microsoft's own Web site.

At the start of this month, the software giant updated its TechNet Web pages with the tools it acquired through its purchase of Sysinternals in July. Sysinternals provides professional system utilities for Windows system management and troubleshooting, and has also offered a spoof Blue Screen of Death for some time.

But antivirus vendors are not impressed with the spoof screensaver software, which is named BlueScreen v3.2.
