I have an old laptop that's not much use for much, but I have Windows 2000 running (extremely cut-down) on it and I want to make it a Walltop (basically a laptop in a picture frame, google for it).

Anyway, here's the original guy's approach: ... walltop/2/

However, he uses Linux (which I'm not too familiar with the guts of, no flamewars please) but all I want to do is create a simple script that I can launch on startup that calls irfanview, starts a slideshow, and kills the mouse pointer, just as he does. Problem is I'm no good at this stuff... any ideas please?

We all have to start somewhere and where better than to learn from experts :-)

Home server: Asus P5Q Pro, Core2Quad, 8GB DDR2, ENGTX260 876MB, Zalman 800w, Antec P180 case, 2x1TB and 2x2TB Samsung Spinpoint F1, Windows 7 64-bit, etc

Work server: HP ProLiant ML350 G6, hexacore Xeon E5645 2.4GHz (12 logical cores), 16GB DDR3, 3x300GB SAS RAID5, Server 2008 R2, nVidia GT560Ti 1GB for Hyper-V RemoteFX acceleration

Have a look here: ... rket=en-us

I just googled WSH ... tnG=Search

What you want to do sounds pretty straightforward and easy to accomplish.

A line in autoexec.bat launching your script on startup sounds like a solution to me.
