Default Need .exe or .bat file to change screen resolution

I've got a client's computer that has a program which when run, refreshes the screen, and changes it to 1024x768 at 16 colors. I would like to have an executeable, or batch file they can click to refresh the screen and return their original resolution settings. (1280x1024@32bit). Any ideas?

VidRes is an easy to use utility that allows you to change most display settings interactively, or via shortcuts.

VidRes is often used to change the display settings for specific programs. For example, if you have your computer set to take advantage of the high resolution of your display, but prefer to run a game at a lower resolution, you can use VidRes to create a shortcut that will run the game program and switch to the lower resolution. When you close the game, or switch back to your main desktop, VidRes will restore the display settings to their original values.

VidRes can change most display settings, including the resolution, colour depth, primary display in a multi-monitor desktop, and the current display in an independent multi-display system.
