Favorite Prank: Goin' back To The Old School

I was browsing on at lunch and came accross this video that explains how to do one of my favorite computer-based pranks of all time. This is my favorite one to do if someone leaves their computer unlocked.

Basically, to sum it up, you take a quick screen shot of the desktop, save it as an image in MSPaint and set it as their wallpaper. Next you hide all of their real desktop icons. The last thing I like to do, which was not mentioned in the video, is drag their task bar to the top of their screen and set it to auto hide. When they come back they are confused as hell when nothing they click on works. If the victim is really un-computer savvy, then this little prank can go for a long, long time! Don't believe me?
