Pop-Up Notifications with PowerShell

This can be considered the least interesting usage of PowerShell and in many ways, not only a source of unwanted interruption, but there are situation where been able to show a toaster or pop-up can be handy.

I was inspired to write this script and article by this scripting guys’ blog post


The script shows a pop-up notification for 15 seconds with a list of Active Directory Users that are locked out, and this script can be schedule to run it every 5 minutes.

By the way, this is not a replacement for proper group policy management of domain account lockout policy, in fact it’s more like an Ops notification with no real-time reaction or trigger by any specific event.
