psexec - The greatest thing since buttered bread
Sure, it's good for remote installing stuff... but i've found a better use...
On a member of staff's machine while their on it is the funniest thing ever!
psexec -c -d -i \\machineName "c:\Program Files\Real Alternative\Media Player Classic\mplayer.exe" "c:\SNL-WhatIsLove.wmv" /fullscreen
We're currently looking for ace ventura clips :P

I use beyondexec sometimes to send whingy kids to pampers.com after they've had their games banned. The volume and level of threats increases most amusingly.
Also got a 1280x1024 jpg of a babys dummy that I fire up, just to REALLY infuriate them.

I'm trying to run this on a colleague's PC to test, MPC is starting but says "file not found".
I've also tested with a WMV and had the same result.
C:\>psexec -c -d -i \\MachineName "C:\Program Files\Media Player Classic\mplayerc.exe" "C:\Roxbury.flv" /fullscreen

make sure you change \\machinename to the name of the machine you want to do it to, also the "c:\progr..." bit needs to actually exist on your machine. If media player classic (or your other fav media player) is somewhere... simply replace the path.
Oh, you must also have admin privs for the pc your doing it to as you basically create a remote service & do some file copies etc.

It's all good until it tries to play the file. psExec says mplayerc.exe is started on his PC and I'm a domain admin...
