    Well my dad thought it would be funny to remove my admin privileges(therefore making my account a "limited" account), and create a new admin account that was passworded. :dead:

    Serves me right for leaving my PC logged on with my account overnight.

    Well, I've managed to get him to give it all back to me, but this time I'm ready with a certain bootable CD if he pulls the same **** again, as for some reason I needed admin priviliges to burn ISOs :speechless:

    You guys got idea for any cool pranks I can use on his laptop to get him back? :D

    There was this program, slipery mouse or something, which made the mouse cursor behave like it is slipping on ice. Very annoying! :p

    If you can get VNC to run as a service (ie: no tray icon) then you can intermittently intervene with his actions to confuse him. Don't do it consistently though, just every now and then to confuse him.

    Hosts file?
    Change their homepages and favorites?
    If you can write a batch file you can get it to restart or what not every ** seconds....

    Another thought. Set-up terminal access, you can then telnet in and open random apps, calc, notepad, mspaint and the like.

    Edit: I'd completely forgot about RJL software: http://www.rjlsoftware.com/software/entertainment/

    I've used some of their stuff a few years back on college machines. Quite amusing :)

    Like someone previously mentioned, wait till hes logged in take a screen capture of his desktop, then move all of his shortcuts to another folder and use the previous screen capture as his desktop He will click away and nothing he does on the desktop will work its genius.... unless hes good with PCs that is...

    My dad would not dare touch my PC's for fear of having all of his fried :p. Besides the point, there are some fun things you can do.

    Edit boot.ini and add new lines that say dirty things. Make them all boot the same windows.

    Autoshutdown, randomly.

    Just a note about the CD:

    If you do use it to change your password, say goodbye to any of your encrypted files that are stored in folders on your HD. As this password is used to encrypt the data, but considering you will be taking over an account that is Administrator and probably won't contain any needed data, you should be fine.

    Make an image of his HDD on your comp (soz you can put everything back :p ) and then wipe it clean and then load linux on it. Or even worse, load Win ME. :D

    Haha some very nice suggestions :D

    Some of them are a bit too extreme. Also my dad is quite competent with computers, so I doubt something as simple as the Slippery Mouse would work. And doing the drive image and installing Linux...man I'd be in so much **** for that :D

    I'll see what I can do and report back...if I can set some of these up.

    @X-istence: Yeah I know about the encryption stuff :)

    got me thinking, the mouse thing, ok, it IS "kinda" extreme this one, but...

    what if you hollowed out his mouse, just left the shell basically, and put an ACTUAL mouse inside? no, i don't mean a dead one...

    just think of the possibilities! lmao :)

    take away priveleges the user SYSTEM has to write to the registry :)

    It's a real annoying problem, and not one that causes obvious symptoms

    muhahaha

    That is evil. :eek: I hated having my account not able to change some registry values, even though I am in the Admin group.
