Screen Screw does just that, it screws with your screen. When you launch Screen Screw it will appear as though your screen has some type of problem painting its colors. The entire screen will have an odd color tint that keeps changing to different colors. The computer is still usable, however the screen looks ruined! Colors change every 10 seconds by default, you can specify the amount of time between color changes with a command line option.

Screen Screw is a harmless prank that will not only screw with your screen, it will screw with your mind! Download Screen Screw, its free and fun.
