It could be either Quiraing in Skye http://www.dangerousroads.org/images/stories/Newroad...
or the Stelvio pass between Italy & Austria http://www.placestoseeinyourlifetime.com/wp-content/...

Thanks, but It's none of those folk have linked to, so far.

Next time I see him and his PC is running I'll get a screen grab and post a link to it.

Just to be clear - this is wallpaper (i.e. normal Windows background) as opposed to the lock screen? If so then I think it must be a custom image as it doesn't seem to correspond to any of the official Windows wallpapers. I'm not sure if there is any list of the lock screen images.

In reply to a post by TinyMongomery:

Yes, it's just the Windows desktop background. I'm sure I've seen it elsewhere.

I need to have a browse through his system to see if I can find the file - C:\Windows\Web would seem a reasonable starting point, else somewhere down the <User>\Appdata\ tree.

Look for

%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\TranscodedWallpaper.jpg

You may have to use VLC to view it.

If you have to swallow a frog, try not to think about it. If you have to swallow two frogs, don't swallow the smaller one first.

That was linked to by BatBoy earlier and the OP has said is not the one.
