    It could be said that that is your fault - you should set c: as first boot device in BIOS. I'm not sure I like the idea of kids being able to bring in bootable sticks and CDs and using them to either trash the system or get around security measures..

    I can't think of anything I really dislike doing. If I had to say something then probably cleaning projectors. It's not really that I dislike doing it, it's just not one of the easiest things to do.

    - SIMS updates
    - Teachers who cant get their laptops running on projectors
    - People rushing me to get certain software installed then don't use it for 6 months, then complain it doesn't work because its out of date again

    Does my nut in too !! 300 laptops later and 9 out of 10 times its oh the key just happened to ping off or it flew off as I pressed it.

    Which I doubt very much as i can press the keys pretty danged hard and they never ping off, Ive had to literally lever the keys off with a screw driver to make em go flying.

    This is on Dell D520 Latitude laptops btw - at least in my case.

    Trying to remove any piece of equipment.

    Someone always seems to have constructed a handy macrame hanging basket out of the cabling and getting it out without loosening the wires to every other electrical appliance in the room is impossible !

    I agree with that one! I'm still missing a couple of keys on my laptop because they broke when I was trying to reattach them. A few swear words were said that night.
