Hey all

I would like to ask a few questions about an idea I had for my forensics class.

1. How hard would it be to create a script that monitored when icons on the desktop are moved? AND (bonus) if they are in a specific placement THEN call a directory?
    And direction with this one would be appreciated.

2. Can a visual password script be created with python? Just like the new method Windows 8 uses.

Monitoring the location of desktop icons should be easy enough to do. I have not been a Windows user for some time but I believe that this information is stored in the Windows registry. In Python you can use the _winreg module to read registry keys. It's just a matter of knowing which keys contain the information you need.
