Fake Format C

This prank screensaver called "FunFormat" mimics the Windows disk formatting tool that can be used to completely erase all data on a computer's hard drive. An animated progress bar suggests the formatting is currently happening. No data is actually affected by this, but it will scare anyone who knows what it means to format the C:\ drive: it would remove both the operating system and all personal data, such as photos, documents and e-mail. Clicking the "Close" button will give your victim an error indicating that the operating system could not be found. Clicking "OK" in this error window will then exit the screensaver.
