"That appears to be SysInternals' BGInfo.

It's a stand-alone executable that you place in your StartUp directory. You can create a Windows scheduled task to refresh it at an interval you choose.

BGInfo basically writes a new desktop bitmap image every time it is executed.

You can pick and choose the data presented, its fonts, colors, etc."
