Looking around for an alternative to active desktop

ive looked far and wide, i want a program that displays a usable webpage on the desktop so that for the oem machines we build, we can put a logo and link to our site, which can be easily removed....

but i cant seem to find anything...

thanks in advance

I think you're just asking for trouble-if you hijack someone's desktop, you're probably going to get lots of tech support calls asking how to get rid of it.
Why not just an image with your logo and site URL like most manufacturers.

Is there any such thing guyz? never heard of it..

Sure. It's called "Active Desktop" and it's always been a disaster.

or u can make a windows application in .net and bring the webpage on to that application using webbrowser control
