We need a program that will "lock up" a computer after X amount of days. The program has to have these perameters: 1. We can change the program everytime we want to. Things we would like to change: number of days, simple two or three line message and our logo. 2. When the computer locks up either during boot up or during operation a window that covers the entire screen will display a custom message we want. 3. When this screen does come up they can call us (The simple two or three line message would include our phone number) and we can give them a release code to get rid of the "lock up." 4. We can have several release codes per computer. The first release code will give them X amount of days more to work with the computer. The second release code will also give them another extension. These release codes are prechoosen by us. The reason why we want this program is to install in our computers that we sell at our office. Often these computers are sold on credit and we have trouble collecting from the customer. So we want a program that is annoying and that keeps them from using the computer until they provide us with payment inexchange for the relase code.
